SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe file type identification tool, file, and its associated library, libmagic, do not properly process malformed files in the Composite Document File (CDF) format, leading to crashes.
Note that after this update, file may return different detection results for CDF files (well-formed or not). The new detections are believed to be more accurate.
SolutionUpgrade the file packages.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 5.04-5+squeeze2.
