openSUSE Security Update : gtk2 (gtk2-583)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 40229


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


A SUSE specific patch to GTK2 accidentally added a relative search path for gtk modules therefore allowed local attackers have gtk programs load modules from untrusted places (CVE-2009-0848).


Update the affected gtk2 packages.
