Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2015-07-01 00:08:30 UTC
CVE-2014-9488 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2014-9488):
  The is_utf8_well_formed function in GNU less before 475 allows remote
  attackers to have unspecified impact via malformed UTF-8 characters, which
  triggers an out-of-bounds read.


Maintainers, please advise if one of the versions > 475 are ready for stabilization.
