Synopsis :

Description :

libgtop before 2.14.6 (libgtop2) allows local users to cause a denial
of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a process
with a long filename that is mapped in its address space, which
triggers the overflow in gnome-system-monitor.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
