Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:076 (xli).



A number of vulnerabilities have been found in the xli image viewer. Tavis
Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team discovered a flaw in the
handling of compressed images where shell meta-characters are not properly
escaped (CVE-2005-0638). It was also found that insufficient validation of
image properties could potentially result in buffer management errors
(CVE-2005-0639).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
