Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : icu (MDVSA-2008:026)
High Nessus Plugin ID 37215
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionWill 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
