Mandrake Linux: xli/xloadimage update

Author: JT Smith

From Net-Security.org: "A buffer overflow exists in xli due to missing boundary
checks. This could be triggered by an external attacker
to execute commands on the victim's machine. An exploit
is publically available. xli is an image viewer that is
used by Netscape's plugger to display TIFF, PNG, and
Sun-Raster images."
