Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

The Google Chrome Security Team discovered two issues (a race condition and a use-after-free issue) in the International Components for Unicode (ICU) library.

Upgrade the icu packages.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 4.4.1-8+squeeze2.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), which is only affected by CVE-2013-2924, this problem has been fixed in version 4.8.1.1-12+deb7u1.
