Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA767] DSA-767-1 ekg

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-767-1 ekg

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Marcin Slusarz discovered two integer overflow vulnerabilities in
libgadu, a library provided and used by ekg, a console Gadu Gadu
client, an instant messaging program, that could lead to the execution
of arbitrary code.
The library is also used by other packages such as kopete, which
should be restarted to take effect of this update.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an ekg package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5+20050411-5.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5+20050718+1.6rc3-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your ekg package.
