Debian Security Advisory DSA 890-1                                        Martin Schulze
November 9th, 2005            
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : libungif4
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2005-2974 CVE-2005-3350
Debian Bug     : 337972

Chris Evans discovered several security related problems in libungif4,
a shared library for GIF images.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities:


    Null pointer dereference, that could cause a denial of service.


    Out of bounds memory access that could cause a denial of service
    or the execution of arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.1.0b1-2woody1.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.1.3-2sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your libungif4 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.
