Marc Schoenefeld discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the XPM reader implementation in netpbm-free, a suite of image manipulation utilities. An attacker could cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via an XPM image file that contains a crafted header field associated with a large color index value.
For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 2:10.0-12+lenny1.
For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2:10.0-12.1+squeeze1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
Due to a problem with the archive system it is not possible to release all architectures. The missing architectures will be installed into the archive once they become available.
We recommend that you upgrade your netpbm-free package.
