Debian Security Advisory DSA-1912-2                  security@debian.org

Package        : advi
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CVE-2009-3296 CVE-2009-2660

Due to the fact that advi, an active DVI previewer and presenter,
statically links against camlimages it was neccessary to rebuilt it in
order to incorporate the latest security fixes for camlimages, which
could lead to integer overflows via specially crafted TIFF files
(CVE-2009-3296) or GIFF and JPEG images (CVE-2009-2660).

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.6.0-13+lenny2.

Due to a bug in the archive system, the fix for the oldstable
distribution (etch) cannot be released at the same time. These problems
will be fixed in version 1.6.0-12+etch2, once it is available.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.6.0-14+b1.

We recommend that you upgrade your advi package.
