Foresight: tetex  12 February 2008 
Previous versions of the tetex package are vulnerable to multiple issues, the worst of which is believed to allow arbitrary code execution via user-assisted vectors when dvips or dviljk are run of specially-crafted files, or when loading malformed font data using t1lib.
Foresight: gd  12 February 2008 
Previous versions of the gd package are vulnerable to a possible Arbitrary Code Execution attack in which an attacker may use a maliciously crafted GIF file to trigger a buffer overflow. The libgd library is not exposed via any privileged or remote interfaces within Foresight Linux proper.
Foresight: perl  12 November 2007 
Previous versions of the perl package contain a buffer overflow in the regular expression parsing code which could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code via a program which uses perl to parse untrusted input as a regular expression.
Foresight: pidgin  12 November 2007 
Previous versions of pidgin are vulnerable to a denial-of-service when pidgin has been configured to use HTML logging. Logging is not enabled by default, so the default install of Foresight Linux is not vulnerable to this issue.
Foresight: ImageMagick  12 November 2007 
Previous versions of the ImageMagick package are vulnerable to multiple attacks whereby an attacker might be able to execute arbitrary code by coercing the user into opening specially-crafted files with ImageMagick.
Foresight: libpng  12 November 2007 
Previous versions of the libpng package can cause applications to crash when loading malformed PNG files. It is not currently known that this vulnerability can be exploited to execute malicious code.
Foresight: pcre  12 November 2007 
Previous versions of the pcre package contain multiple vulnerabilities which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.

The pcre library and utilities are not known to be exposed via any privileged or remote interfaces within Foresight Linux by default, but many applications linked to the pcre library are routinely exposed to untrusted data.
