==========================
==========================
=========

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04
Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.04:
screen 4.0.2-4.1ubuntu2.5.04

Ubuntu 5.10:
screen 4.0.2-4.1ubuntu2.5.10

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
screen 4.0.2-4.1ubuntu5.6.06

Ubuntu 6.10:
screen 4.0.2-4.1ubuntu5.6.10

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart any running screen
sessions to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

cstone and Rich Felker discovered a programming error in the UTF8 string
handling code of "screen" leading to a denial of service. If a crafted
string was displayed within a screen session, screen would crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code.
