More information:

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libcaca, a graphics library that outputs text: integer overflows, floating point exceptions or invalid memory reads may lead to a denial-of-service (application crash) if a malformed image file is processed.

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 0.99.beta19-2+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libcaca packages.
