Date Reported:
03 Mar 2015
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 775003.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2015-2063.
More information:

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 Debian 6 Squeeze, these issues have been fixed in unace version 1.2b-7+deb6u1
