Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several problems have been discovered in libgadu which is also part of
centericq, a text-mode multi-protocol instant messenger client. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:
Multiple integer signedness errors may permit remote attackers to
cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.
Memory alignment errors may permits remote attackers to cause a
denial of service on certain architectures such as sparc.
Several endianess errors may permit remote attackers to cause a
