    Luke "infamous41md" discoverd multiple vulnerabilities in xzgv, a
    picture viewer for X11 with a thumbnail-based selector.  Remote
    exploitation of an integer overflow vulnerability could allow the
    execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.7-6woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.8-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xzgv package immediately.
