---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : xzgv
Vulnerability : integer overflows
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0994

Luke "infamous41md" discoverd multiple vulnerabilities in xzgv, a picture viewer for X11 with a thumbnail-based selector. Remote exploitation of an integer overflow vulnerability could allow the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 0.7-6woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 0.8-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your xzgv package immediately.
