Debian Security Advisory DSA-3525-1 security@debian.org https://www.debian.org/security/ Salvatore Bonaccorso March 22, 2016 https://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : pixman CVE ID : CVE-2014-9766

Vincent LE GARREC discovered an integer overflow in pixman, a pixel-manipulation library for X and cairo. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to cause an application using the pixman library to crash, or potentially, to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 0.26.0-4+deb7u2.

For the stable distribution (jessie), the testing distribution (stretch) and the unstable distribution (sid), this problem was already fixed in version 0.32.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pixman packages.
