    A problem has been discovered in the processing of chat messages. Overly long messages are truncated by the server to a fixed length, without paying attention to the multibyte characters. This leads to invalid UTF-8 on clients and causes an uncaught exception.

    Package        : wesnoth
    Vulnerability  : progrmaming error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2007-3917
    
    A problem has been discovered in the processing of chat messages.
    Overly long messages are truncated by the server to a fixed length,
    without paying attention to the multibyte characters.  This leads to
    invalid UTF-8 on clients and causes an uncaught exception.  Note that
    both wesnoth and the wesnoth server are affected.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.0-6 and in version 1.2.7-1~bpo31+1 of sarge-backports.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2-2 and in version 1.2.7-1~bpo40+1 of etch-backports.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.7-1.
    
    Packages for the oldstable mips architecture will be added to the
    archive later.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wesnoth packages.
