USN-434-1: Ekiga vulnerability

9 March 2007

Ekiga vulnerability



It was discovered that Ekiga had format string vulnerabilities beyond
those fixed in USN-426-1. 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 - 2.0.3-0ubuntu3.2
Ubuntu 6.06
  • ekiga - 2.0.1-0ubuntu6.2
Ubuntu 5.10
  • gnomemeeting - 1.2.2-1ubuntu1.2

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Ekiga or reboot your
computer to effect the necessary changes.
