Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-2978

A buffer overflow has been identified in the pnmtopng component of the

The old stable distribution (woody) it not vulnerable to this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 10.0-8sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 10.0-10.

We recommend that you upgrade your netpbm-free packages.
