DESCRIPTION
 The netpbm package contains a library of functions and a set of basic
 tools to manipulate various graphics file formats, including pbm,
 pgm, pnm, ppm and others.
 
 Alan Cox and Al Viro discovered[1] several "math overflow"
 vulnerabilities in netpbm versions <= 9.20. These vulnerabilities can
 be exploited by attackers using specially crafted images. Successful
 exploitation can lead to denial of service conditions or arbitrary
 code execution with the privileges of the user running the affected
 program.
 
 The netpbm packages included in this update announcement are based on
 netpbm version 9.20 and contain a patch to fix the aforementioned
 vulnerabilities.
 
 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned
 the name CAN-2003-0146 to this issue[2].


SOLUTION
 All netpbm users should upgrade.
