 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2011:194

 Package : icu
 Date    : December 27, 2011
 Affected: 2010.1, 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in icu:
 A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way ICU
 performed variant canonicalization for some locale identifiers. If a
 specially-crafted locale representation was opened in an application
 linked against ICU, it could cause the application to crash or,
 possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
 running the application (CVE-2011-4599).
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
