Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56315
Category:FreeBSD Local Security Checks
Title:FreeBSD Ports: gedit
Summary:FreeBSD Ports: gedit
Description:The remote host is missing an update to the system
as announced in the referenced advisory.

The following package is affected: gedit

CVE-2005-1686
Format string vulnerability in gedit 2.10.2 may allow attackers to
cause a denial of service (application crash) via a bin file with
format string specifiers in the filename. NOTE: while this issue is
triggered on the command line by the gedit user, it has been reported
that web browsers and email clients could be configured to provide a
file name as an argument to gedit, so there is a valid attack that
crosses security boundaries.

Solution:
Update your system with the appropriate patches or
software upgrades.
