Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in xloadimage, an image
viewer for X11. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:
Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team has reported
a flaw in the handling of compressed images, where shell
meta-characters are not adequately escaped.
Insufficient validation of image properties have been
discovered which could potentially result in buffer management
errors.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
