Posted on: 07/27/2005 02:52 PM

New ekg update has been released for Debian GNU/Linux

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA 767-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
July 27th, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : ekg
Vulnerability : integer overflows
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-1852

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.
