Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gtkhtml (MDKSA-2003:093)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 14075
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionAlan 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected gtkhtml, libgtkhtml20 and / or libgtkhtml20-devel packages.
