Description

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in ekg, a console Gadu Gadu client. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2005-2370 It was discovered that memory alignment errors may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service on certain architectures such as sparc. This only affects Debian Sarge.

  • CVE-2005-2448 It was discovered that several endianess errors may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service. This only affects Debian Sarge.

  • CVE-2007-1663 It was discovered that a memory leak in handling image messages may lead to denial of service. This only affects Debian Etch.

  • CVE-2007-1664 It was discovered that a NULL pointer deference in the token OCR code may lead to denial of service. This only affects Debian Etch.

  • CVE-2007-1665 It was discovered that a memory leak in the token OCR code may lead to denial of service. This only affects Debian Etch.
