Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-3384-01 - Liblouis is an open source braille translator and back-translator named in honor of Louis Braille. It features support for computer and literary braille, supports contracted and uncontracted translation for many languages and has support for hyphenation. New languages can easily be added through tables that support a rule or dictionary based approach. Liblouis also supports math braille. Security Fix: A missing fix for one stack-based buffer overflow in findTable() for CVE-2014-8184 was discovered. An attacker could cause denial of service or potentially allow arbitrary code execution.
