Package        : unace
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-2063
Debian Bug     : 775003

Jakub Wilk discovered that unace, an utility to extract, test and view
.ace archives, contained an integer overflow leading to a buffer
overflow. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a
specially crafted ace archive, an attacker could cause a denial of
service (application crash) or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2b-10+deb7u1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been
fixed in version 1.2b-12.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2b-12.

We recommend that you upgrade your unace packages.
