Debian Security Advisory DSA-2178-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer March 02, 2011 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : pango1.0 Vulnerability : NULL pointer dereference Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2011-0064

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.

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.
