USN-426-1: Ekiga vulnerabilities

22 February 2007

Ekiga vulnerabilities



Mu Security discovered a format string vulnerability in Ekiga. If a
user was running Ekiga and listening for incoming calls, a remote
attacker could send a crafted call request, and execute arbitrary code
with the user's privileges.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.10
  • ekiga - 2.0.3-0ubuntu3.1
Ubuntu 6.06
  • ekiga - 2.0.1-0ubuntu6.1
Ubuntu 5.10
  • gnomemeeting - 1.2.2-1ubuntu1.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Ekiga to effect the
necessary changes.
