    Tim Starling discovered that libthai, a set of Thai language support routines,
    is vulnerable of integer/heap overflow.
    This vulnerability could allow an attacker to run arbitrary code by sending a very
    long string.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
