The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0220.

The gcc packages include C, C++, Java, Fortran 77, Objective C, and Ada 95

attacker could create a malicious JAR file which, if unpacked using
fastjar, could write to any files the victim had write access to.

These updated packages also fix several bugs, including:

* two debug information generator bugs

* two internal compiler errors

In addition to this, protoize.1 and unprotoize.1 manual pages have been
added to the package and __cxa_get_exception_ptr@@CXXABI_1.3.1 symbol has
been added into

For full details regarding all fixed bugs, refer to the package changelog
as well as the specified list of bug reports from bugzilla.

All users of gcc should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to resolve these issues.
