Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gtkhtml (MDKSA-2003:093)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Alan Cox discovered that certain malformed messages could cause the
Evolution mail component to crash due to a NULL pointer dereference in
the GtkHTML library, versions prior to 1.1.0.

The updated package provides a patched version of GtkHTML; versions of
Mandrake Linux more recent than 9.0 do not require this fix as they
already come with version 1.1.0.

Solution :

Update the affected gtkhtml, libgtkhtml20 and / or libgtkhtml20-devel
packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
