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
