openSUSE 10 Security Update : gv (gv-2338)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The previous 'gv' update to fix a stack overflow did not completely
fix the problem spotted. An attacker could still cause the handling to
use up all system memory, or open windows much wider than the X
display and crash. Code execution however was not possible.

Solution :

Update the affected gv package.

Risk factor :
