[DSA886] DSA-886-1 chmlib

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-886-1 chmlib

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in chmlib, a library for
dealing with CHM format files. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Palasik Sandor discovered a buffer overflow in the LZX
decompression method.
A buffer overflow has been discovered that could lead to the
execution of arbitrary code.
Sven Tantau discovered a buffer overflow that could lead to the
execution of arbitrary code.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain chmlib packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.37-2.
We recommend that you upgrade your chmlib packages.
