    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
    version 0.1.6-1+etch1.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.1.9-4+lenny1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), and the unstable distribution (sid),
    this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libthai package.
