 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2007:058
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : ekiga
 Date    : March 8, 2007
 Affected: 2007.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 A format string flaw was discovered in how ekiga processes certain
 messages, which could permit a remote attacker that can connect to
 ekiga to potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
 the user running ekiga. This is similar to the previous
 CVE-2007-1006, but the original evaluation/patches were incomplete.
 
 Updated package have been patched to correct this issue.
