Description

Package : icu Version : 4.4.1-8+squeeze4 CVE ID : CVE-2015-4760

A vulnerability has been found in the International Components for Unicode (ICU) library:

CVE-2015-4760

It was discovered that ICU Layout Engine was missing multiple
boundary checks. These could lead to buffer overflows and memory
corruption. A specially crafted file could cause an application
using ICU to parse untrusted font files to crash and, possibly,
execute arbitrary code.

For the squeeze distribution, these issues have been fixed in version 4.4.1-8+squeeze4 of icu.

We recommend to upgrade your icu packages.
