<p>ChaSen is a Japanese morphological analysis system.</p>
<p>An error in chalib.c of ChaSen could cause a buffer overflow.</p>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted text
file using ChaSen or an application using the ChaSen libraries, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process or a Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All ChaSen users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=app-text/chasen-2.4.4-r2"
