Summary

The remote host is missing an update to pango1.0 announced via advisory DSA 2178-1.

Insight

Insight

It was discovered that pango did not check for memory allocation failures, causing a NULL pointer dereference with an adjustable offset. This can lead to application crashes and potentially arbitrary code execution.

Solution

Solution

The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by this problem. For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.28.3-1+squeeze2. For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon. We recommend that you upgrade your pango1.0 packages.
