Australian Delphi User Group Symposium – La Trobe University, Melbourne. Helen Borrie will be giving a session on: Sweet-talking Firebird with Delphi

The better the request, the more sweetly the database engine will oblige. In this presentation, Helen will address various techniques that Delphi developers use and explain how rewarding a good understanding of Firebird’s personality can be. More details at: ADUG Symposium
Aviram Jenik and Damyan Ivanov discovered a buffer overflow in firebird2, an RDBMS based on InterBase 6.0 code, that allows remote attackers to crash.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain firebird2 packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.1-4sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 220.127.116.1170-3
