Debian Security Advisory DSA-1416-1                  security () debian org

Package        : tk8.3
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-5378

It was discovered that Tk, a cross-platform graphical toolkit for Tcl
performs insufficient input validation in the code used to load GIF
images, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 8.3.5-6etch1.

Due to the technical limitation in the Debian archive scripts the update
for the old stable distribution (sarge) cannot be released in sync with
the update for the stable distribution. It will be provided in the next
days.

We recommend that you upgrade your tk8.3 packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
