Package        : blender
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2005-3302 CVE-2005-4470
BugTraq ID     : 15981
Debian Bugs    : 330895 344398

Several vulnerabilities have been discoverd in in blender, a very fast
and versatile 3D modeller/renderer.  The Common Vulnerability and
Exposures Project identifies the following problems:


    Joxean Koret discovered that due to missing input validation a
    provides script is vulnerable to arbitrary command execution.


    Damian Put discovered a buffer overflow that allows remote
    attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute
    arbitrary code.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.36-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.40-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your blender 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.
