    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.
