The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability was discovered in gEdit where it was possible for an
attacker to create a file with a carefully crafted name which, when
opened, executed arbitrary code on the victim's computer. It is highly
unlikely that a user would open such a file, due to the file name, but
could possibly be tricked into opening it.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
Update the affected gedit and / or gedit-devel packages.
