Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors,
a denial of service flaw was found in the way Ekiga,
a Gnome based SIP/H323 teleconferencing application,
processed information from certain OPAL connections
([certain] UTF-8 strings were not verified for validity
prior showing them). A remote attacker (other party with
a not UTF-8 valid name) could use this flaw to cause
ekiga executable crash.
Upstream bug report:
Relevant upstream patch:
Could you allocate a CVE id for this?
Thank you && Regards, Jan.
