    2005-07-07. The Unicode Consortium announced today the release of the
    first version of UTR #36: Unicode Security Considerations:


    Because Unicode contains such a large number of characters and
    incorporates the varied writing systems of the world, incorrect usage can
    expose programs or systems to possible security attacks. This document
    describes some of the security considerations that programmers, system
    analysts, standards developers, and users should take into account, and
    provides specific recommendations to reduce the risk of problems.
