Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA448] DSA-448-1 pwlib

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-448-1 pwlib

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in pwlib, a library used to
aid in writing portable applications, whereby a remote attacker could
cause a denial of service or potentially execute arbitrary code. This
library is most notably used in several applications implementing the
H.323 teleconferencing protocol, including the OpenH323 suite,
gnomemeeting and asterisk.
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 1.2.5-5woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
Refer to Debian Bug#233888 for details.
We recommend that you update your pwlib package.
