Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.58483
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0765
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

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
and
PIDs.

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.

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
