Debian Security Advisory DSA 614-1                                        Martin Schulze
December 21st, 2004           

Package        : xzgv
Vulnerability  : integer overflows
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0994

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.
