Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:416
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:416.

Kdbg is a K Desktop Environment (KDE) GUI for gdb, the GNU debugger.

with the permission of any user that runs Kdbg. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2003-0644 to this issue.

Users of Kdbg should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to correct this issue.
