[SECURITY] [DSA 224-1] New canna packages fix buffer overflow and denial of serv

by Nikola Strahija on January 9th, 2003 Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in canna, a Japanese input system.

Package : canna
Vulnerability : buffer overflow and more
Problem-Type : local, remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CAN-2002-1158 CAN-2002-1159
BugTraq Id : 6351 6354

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in canna, a Japanese
input system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project
identified the following vulnerabilities:

* CAN-2002-1158 (BugTraq Id 6351): "hsj" of Shadow Penguin Security
discovered a heap overflow vulnerability in the irw_through
function in canna server.

* CAN-2002-1159 (BugTraq Id 6354): Shinra Aida of the Canna project
discovered that canna does not properly validate requests, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or information

For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been
fixed in version 3.5b2-46.2.

For the old stable distribution (potato) these problems have been
fixed in version 3.5b2-25.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.6p1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your canna packages.
