Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1038] DSA-1038-1 xzgv

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1038-1 xzgv

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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.
