Debian Security Advisory DSA 743-1                     security@debian.org

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : ht
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows, integer overflows
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1545 CAN-2005-1546

Several problems have been discovered in ht, a viewer, editor and
analyser for various executables, that may lead to the execution of
arbitrary code.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CAN-2005-1545

    Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Team discovered an
    integer overflow in the ELF parser.

CAN-2005-1546

    The authors have discovered a buffer overflow in the PE parser.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed
in version 0.5.0-1woody4.  For the HP Precision architecture, you are
advised not to use this package anymore since we cannot provide
updated packages as it doesn't compile anymore.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.0-2sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version ht_0.8.0-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your ht package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
