Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-743-1 ht

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several problems have been discovered in ht, a viewer, editor and
analyser for various executables, that may lead to the execution of
arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:
Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Team discovered an
integer overflow in the ELF parser.
The authors have discovered a buffer overflow in the PE parser.
For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed
in version 0.5.0-1woody4. For the HP Precision architecture, you are
advised not to use this package anymore since we cannot provide
updated packages as it doesn't compile anymore.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.0-2sarge4.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.0-3.
We recommend that you upgrade your ht package.
