Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:058
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : ekiga
Date : March 8, 2007
Affected: 2007.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A format string flaw was discovered in how ekiga processes certain
messages, which could permit a remote attacker that can connect to
ekiga to potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the user running ekiga. This is similar to the previous
CVE-2007-1006, but the original evaluation/patches were incomplete.

Updated package have been patched to correct this issue.
