Debian Security Advisory DSA-1634-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst
September 20, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : wordnet
Vulnerability : stack and heap overflows
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE id(s) : CVE-2008-2149
Debian Bug : 481186 498855

A regression was discovered in the original patch addressing this issue
for WordNet, which this update fixes. For reference the text of the
original advisory follows.

Rob Holland discovered several programming errors in WordNet, an
electronic lexical database of the English language. These flaws could
allow arbitrary code execution when used with untrusted input, for
example when WordNet is in use as a back end for a web application.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:2.1-4+etch2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:3.0-13.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordnet package.
