Debian Security Advisory DSA-1634-1                  security () debian org

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : wordnet
Vulnerability  : stack and heap overflows
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE id(s)      : CVE-2008-2149
Debian Bug     : 481186

Rob Holland discovered several programming errors in WordNet, an
electronic lexical database of the English language. These flaws could
allow arbitrary code execution when used with untrusted input, for
example when WordNet is in use as a back end for a web application.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:2.1-4+etch1.

For the testing distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:3.0-11+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordnet package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
