Posted on: 10/15/2007 09:50 AM

The Debian Security Team published a new security update for Debian GNU/Linux. Here the announcement:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA 1386-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
October 15th, 2007 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : wesnoth
Vulnerability : progrmaming error
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-3917

A problem has been discovered in the processing of chat messages.
Overly long messages are truncated by the server to a fixed length,
without paying attention to the multibyte characters. This leads to
invalid UTF-8 on clients and causes an uncaught exception. Note that
both wesnoth and the wesnoth server are affected.

For the old stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.0-6 and in version 1.2.7-1~bpo31+1 of sarge-backports.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2-2 and in version 1.2.7-1~bpo40+1 of etch-backports.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2.7-1.

Packages for the oldstable mips architecture will be added to the
archive later.

We recommend that you upgrade your wesnoth packages.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given at the end of this advisory:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
