Debian Security Advisory DSA-1432-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Steve Kemp December 16, 2007 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : link-grammar Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem type : local Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-5395 Debian Bug : 450695

Alin Rad Pop discovered that link-grammar, Carnegie Mellon University's link grammar parser for English, performed insufficient validation within its tokenizer, which could allow a malicious input file to execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 4.2.2-4etch1.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this package was not present.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem was fixed in version 4.2.5-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your link-grammar package.
