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

High Nessus Plugin ID 29455


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


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.


Apply ZYPP patch number 2339.
