Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA859] DSA-859-1 xli

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-859-1 xli

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Ariel Berkman discovered several buffer overflows in xloadimage, which
are also present in xli, a command line utility for viewing images in
X11, and could be exploited via large image titles and cause the
execution of arbitrary code.
For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.17.0-11woody2.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.17.0-18sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your xli package.
