Debian Security Advisory DSA-1491-1                  security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                       Moritz Muehlenhoff
February 10, 2008                     http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : tk8.4
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0553

It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the GIF image parsing code
of Tk, a cross-platform graphical toolkit, could lead to denial of
service and potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 8.4.12-1etch2.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 8.4.9-1sarge2.

We recommend that you upgrade your tk8.4 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.
