A new security update for Debian GNU/Linux has been released

DSA-263-1 netpbm-free -- math overflow errors

Al Viro and Alan Cox discovered several maths overflow errors in NetPBM, a set of graphics conversion tools. These programs are not installed setuid root but are often installed to prepare data for processing. These vulnerabilities may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 9.20-8.2.

The old stable distribution (potato) does not seem to be affected by this problem.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 9.20-9.
