- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : centericq
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CAN-2005-2369 CAN-2005-2370 CAN-2005-2448
BugTraq ID : 14415

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:

CAN-2005-2369

Multiple integer signedness errors may allow remote attackers to
cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.

CAN-2005-2370

Memory alignment errors may allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service on certain architectures such as sparc.

CAN-2005-2448

Several endianess errors may allow remote attackers to cause a
denial of service.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.20.0-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.20.0-9.

We recommend that you upgrade your centericq package.
