Package        : netpbm-free
Vulnerability  : math overflow errors
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0146
CERT advisory  : VU#378049 VU#630433

Al Viro and Alan Cox discovered several maths overflow errors in
NetPBM, a set of graphics conversion tools.  These programs are not
installed setuid root but are often installed to prepare data for
processing.  These vulnerabilities may allow remote attackers to cause
a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 9.20-8.2.

The old stable distribution (potato) does not seem to be affected
by this problem.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been
fixed in version 9.20-9.

We recommend that you upgrade your netpbm package.
