Errata
======

The previous security patch intended to fix this vulnerability was apparently
incorrect in that it counted the words rather than characters. This revision
fixes that. This was brought to our attention by by Ludwig Nussel
<ludwig.nussel@suse.de>


Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-text/aspell <= 0.50.5-r3 >= 0.50.5-r4


Availability
============

This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at
the Gentoo Security Website:

http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200406-14.xml

Concerns?
=========

Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the
confidentiality and security of our users machines is of utmost
importance to us. Any security concerns should be addressed to
security@gentoo.org or alternatively, you may file a bug at
http://bugs.gentoo.org.
