Debian Security Advisory DSA 672-1 security@debian.org

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

Package : xview
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-0076

Erik Sjölund discovered that programs linked against xview are vulnerable to a number of buffer overflows in the XView library. When the overflow is triggered in a program which is installed setuid root a malicious user could perhaps execute arbitrary code as privileged user.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 3.2p1.4-16woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 3.2p1.4-19.

We recommend that you upgrade your xview packages.
