Debian DLA-744-1 : icu security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 96005

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Brief introduction

CVE-2014-9911

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.

CVE-2016-7415

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 4.8.1.1-12+deb7u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your icu packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
