Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.58291
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0469
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0469.

GDB, the GNU debugger, allows debugging of programs written in C, C++, and
other languages by executing them in a controlled fashion and then printing
their data.

Various buffer overflows and underflows were found in the DWARF expression
computation stack in GDB. If an attacker could trick a user into loading
an executable containing malicious debugging information into GDB, they may
be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user.
(CVE-2006-4146)

This updated package also addresses the following issues:

* Support on 64-bit hosts shared libraries debuginfo larger than 2GB.

* Fix a race occasionally leaving the detached processes stopped.

* Fix segmentation fault on the source display by ^X 1.

* Fix a crash on an opaque type dereference.

All users of gdb should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches to resolve these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
