Debian Security Advisory DSA 878-1                                        Martin Schulze
October 28th, 2005

Package        : netpbm-free
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-2978

A buffer overflow has been identified in the pnmtopng component of the
netpbm package, a set of graphics conversion tools.  This
vulnerability could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code as a
local user by providing a specially crafted PNM file.

The old stable distribution (woody) it not vulnerable to this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 10.0-8sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 10.0-10.

We recommend that you upgrade your netpbm-free packages.

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.
