Debian Security Advisory DSA 998-1                                        Martin Schulze
March 14th, 2006

Package        : libextractor
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no

Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf,
which are also present in libextractor, a library to extract arbitrary
meta-data from files.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain libextractor packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.4.2-2sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.5.10-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libextractor 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.
