The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way libgtop2 handled long filenames mapped
into the address space of a process. An attacker could execute
arbitrary code on behalf of the user running gnome-system-monitor by
executing a process and mapping a file with a specially crafted name
into the processes' address space. (CVE-2007-0235)
This update also fixes the following bug :
- when a version of libgtop2 compiled to run on a 32-bit
architecture was used to inspect a process running in
64-bit mode, it failed to report certain information
regarding address space mapping correctly.
See also :
Update the affected libgtop2 and / or libgtop2-devel packages.
Risk factor :
Low / CVSS Base Score : 3.7
