Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2016-07-27 07:58:28 UTC
From ${URL} :

It was found that uloc_acceptLanguageFromHTTP function in common/uloc.cpp does not ensure that there is a '\0' character at the end of a certain 
temporary array that leads to out of bounds access, possibly causing DoS.

CVE assignment:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
