    Package        : ekg
    Vulnerability  : integer overflows
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1852
    Marcin Slusarz discovered two integer overflow vulnerabilities in
    libgadu, a library provided and used by ekg, a console Gadu Gadu
    client, an instant messaging program, that could lead to the execution
    of arbitrary code.
    The library is also used by other packages such as kopete, which
    should be restarted to take effect of this update.
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an ekg package.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.5+20050411-5.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.5+20050718+1.6rc3-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your ekg package.
