* Kurt Seifried:

We recently pointed the CERT BFF at the ubiquitous "file" command
and found a few bugs.  While we've not proven the bugs to be
exploitable, we've also not ruled out the possibility that they
could be.

Fixes were committed on Feb 16, 2012: 

If any of these are security issues please let me know and I will
assign CVE #'s.

file also provides a library, libmagic.  This could lead to crashes of
server processes which use libmagic.  Debian will likely release a fix
as a security update.
