Little CMS (aka Little Color Management System) has an integer overflow in the AllocateDataSet function in cmscgats.c, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow in the SetData function via a crafted file in the second argument to cmsIT8LoadFromFile.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.19.dfsg2-1.2+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your lcms packages.
