Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0765

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0765.

The libgtop2 package contains a library for obtaining information about a
running system, such as cpu, memory and disk usage
active processes

A flaw was found in the way libgtop2 handled long filenames mapped
into the address space of a process. An attacker could execute arbitrary
code on behalf of the user running gnome-system-monitor by executing a
process and mapping a file with a specially crafted name into the
processes' address space. (CVE-2007-0235)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* when a version of libgtop2 compiled to run on a 32-bit architecture was
used to inspect a process running in 64-bit mode, it failed to report
certain information regarding address space mapping correctly.

All users of gnome-system-monitor are advised to upgrade to this updated
libgtop2 package, which contains backported patches that resolve these issues.

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
