Debian Security Advisory DSA-3830-1 [email protected]

Package : icu
CVE ID : CVE-2017-7867 CVE-2017-7868
Debian Bug : 860314

It was discovered that icu, the International Components for Unicode
library, did not correctly validate its input. An attacker could use
this problem to trigger an out-of-bound write through a heap-based
buffer overflow, thus causing a denial of service via application
crash, or potential execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 52.1-8+deb8u5.

For the upcoming stable (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions,
these problems have been fixed in version 57.1-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your icu packages.
