Debian DLA-744-1 : icu security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 96005
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
Michele Spagnuolo discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted text.
A stack-based buffer overflow might allow an attacker with control of the locale string to perform a denial of service and, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 188.8.131.52-12+deb7u6.
We recommend that you upgrade your icu packages.
