Description :

Updated gcc packages that fix a security issue and another bug are now

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the

The gcc packages include C, C++, Java, Fortran 77, Objective C, and
Ada 95 GNU compilers and related support libraries.

Jürgen Weigert discovered a directory traversal flaw in fastjar. An
attacker could create a malicious JAR file which, if unpacked using
fastjar, could write to any files the victim had write access to.

These updated packages also fix a reload internal compiler error with
-fnon-call-exceptions option.

All users of gcc should upgrade to these updated packages, which
