Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : icu (MDVSA-2008:026)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Will Drewry reported multiple flaws in how libicu processed certain
malformed regular expressions. If an application linked against
libicu, such as OpenOffice.org, processed a carefully-crafted regular
expression, it could potentially cause the execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
