USN-545-1: link-grammar vulnerability

26 November 2007

link-grammar vulnerability




Alin Rad Pop discovered that AbiWord's Link Grammar parser did not
correctly handle overly-long words. If a user were tricked into opening
a specially crafted document, AbiWord, or other applications using Link
Grammar, could be made to crash.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 7.10

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