Debian Security Advisory DSA 1221-1                                       Martin Schulze
November 30th, 2006           
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : libgsf
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no

"infamous41md" discovered a heap buffer overflow vulnerability in
libgsf, a GNOME library for reading and writing structured file
formats, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.11.1-1sarge1

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.14.2-1

We recommend that you upgrade your libgsf 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 at the end of this advisory:

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.
