SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in icu :
A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way ICU performed variant canonicalization for some locale identifiers. If a specially crafted locale representation was opened in an application linked against ICU, it could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application (CVE-2011-4599).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
