Package : unicon-imc2
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-2835


Steve Kemp from the Debian Security Audit project discovered that
unicon-imc2, a Chinese input method library, makes unsafe use of
an environmental variable, which may be exploited to execute arbitary
code.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.4-11etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed shortly.

We recommend that you upgrade your unicon-imc2 package.
