The version of link-grammar provided on the VL 5.9 Standard iso contains a security vulnerability that could result in a buffer overflow when parsing long words (CVE 2007-5395).  link-grammar is used by Abiword plugins.  If you have Abiword plugins installed on any version of VL 5.9 you probably should upgrade your link-grammar package.

link-grammar 4.3.8, the latest version, is now available in the testing repository.
