  <impact type="normal">
    <p>Remote attackers could cause a Denial of Service condition or possibly
      have other unspecified impacts via a long locale string or
      httpAcceptLanguage argument.  Additionally, A remote attacker, via a
      specially crafted file, could cause an application using ICU to parse
      untrusted font files resulting in a Denial of Service condition. 
      Finally, remote attackers could affect confidentiality via unknown
      vectors related to 2D.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
