Mandriva: Updated icu packages fix vulnerabilities Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake Will Drewry reported multiple flaws in how libicu processed certain malformed regular expressions. If an application linked against libicu, such as OpenOffice.org, processed a carefully-crafted regular expression, it could potentially cause the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
