Summary

The remote host is missing an update to ekg announced via advisory DSA 767-1. Marcin Slusarz discovered two integer overflow vulnerabilities in libgadu, a library provided and used by ekg, a console Gadu Gadu client, an instant messaging program, that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The library is also used by other packages such as kopete, which should be restarted to take effect of this update. The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an ekg package.

Solution

Solution

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 1.5+20050411-5. For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 1.5+20050718+1.6rc3-1. We recommend that you upgrade your ekg package. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=DSA%20767-1
