Debian Security Advisory DSA 1038-1                    security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze
April 22nd, 2006                        http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : xzgv
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-1060

Andrea Barisani discovered that xzgv, a picture viewer for X with a
thumbnail-based selector, attempts to decode JPEG images within the
CMYK/YCCK colour space incorrectly, which could lead to the execution
of arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.7-6woody3.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8-3sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your xzgv 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.
