that it could cause an application linked with imlib to execute
arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CVE-2004-0817 to this issue.
Users of imlib should update to this updated package which contains
backported patches and is not vulnerable to this issue.
