SuSE 10 Security Update : gv (ZYPP Patch Number 2339)

Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

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 :

Apply ZYPP patch number 2339.
