Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA113] DSA-113-1 ncurses

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-113-1 ncurses

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several buffer overflows were fixed in the "ncurses" library in November
2000. Unfortunately, one was missed. This can lead to crashes when using
ncurses applications in large windows.
The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project has assigned the name
CVE-2002-0062 to this issue.
This problem has been fixed for the stable release of Debian in version
5.0-6.0potato2. The testing and unstable releases contain ncurses 5.2,
which is not affected by this problem.
There are no known exploits for this problem, but we recommend that all
users upgrade ncurses immediately.
