Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2018-01-25 15:52:35 UTC
CVE-2017-17484 (
  The ucnv_UTF8FromUTF8 function in ucnv_u8.cpp in International Components
  for Unicode (ICU) for C/C++ through 60.1 mishandles ucnv_convertEx calls for
  UTF-8 to UTF-8 conversion, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial
  of service (stack-based buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly
  have unspecified other impact via a crafted string, as demonstrated by ZNC.

Fixed by the noted versions which are already stable in the tree.
