The original advisory is only for 1.x. Secunia added some info

I understand. I used <le> because (1) this is a binary port and
there won't be a patch and a bump, so <lt> version+bump
does not make sense, (2) the bug has been confirmed in <=2.5
only, and winace team is not very public about security fixes,
(3) I'm the maintainer and I think the port has outlived its
usefulness, so I scheduled it for removal in a month unless
we are surprised by a brand new unace binary.
If you think that <gt> 0 or something like that is better, please
tell me and I'll fix the advisory.
