Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA608] DSA-608-1 zgv

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-608-1 zgv

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in zgv, an SVGAlib
graphics viewer for the i386 architecture. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures Project identifies the following problems:
"infamous41md" discovered multiple
integer overflows in zgv. Remote exploitation of an integer
overflow vulnerability could permit the execution of arbitrary
code.
Mikulas Patocka discovered that malicious multiple-image (e.g.
animated) GIF images can cause a segmentation fault in zgv.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 5.5-3woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your zgv package immediately.
