Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA676] DSA-676-1 xpcd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-676-1 xpcd

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Erik Sjölund discovered a buffer overflow in pcdsvgaview, an SVGA
PhotoCD viewer. xpcd-svga is part of xpcd and uses svgalib to display
graphics on the Linux console for which root permissions are required.
A malicious user could overflow a fixed-size buffer and may cause the
program to execute arbitrary code with elevated rights.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.08-8woody3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your xpcd-svga package immediately.
