=========================================================== Ubuntu Security Notice USN-265-1 March 23, 2006 libcairo vulnerability CVE-2006-0528 =========================================================== A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases: Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger) The following packages are affected: libcairo2 The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to version 1.0.2-0ubuntu1.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes. Details follow: When rendering glyphs, the cairo graphics rendering library did not check the maximum length of character strings. A request to display an excessively long string with cairo caused a program crash due to an X library error. Mike Davis discovered that this could be turned into a Denial of Service attack in Evolution. An email with an attachment with very long lines caused Evolution to crash repeatedly until that email was manually removed from the mail folder. This only affects Ubuntu 5.10. Previous Ubuntu releases did not use libcairo for text rendering.
