Package : imlib2
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-5187
Debian Bug : 505714

Julien Danjou and Peter De Wachter discovered that a buffer overflow
in the XPM loader of Imlib2, a powerful image loading and rendering
library, might lead to arbitrary code execution.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.0.0debian1-4+etch2.

For the upcoming stable distribution (lenny) and the unstable
distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.0-1.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your imlib2 packages.
