Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0777

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0777.

Gdm (the GNOME Display Manager) is a highly configurable reimplementation
of xdm, the X Display Manager. Gdm allows you to log into your system with
the X Window System running and supports running several different X
sessions on your local machine at the same time.

A flaw was found in the way Gdm listens on its unix domain socket. A local
user could crash a running X session by writing malicious data to Gdm's
unix domain socket. (CVE-2007-3381)

All users of gdm should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch that resolves this issue.

Red Hat would like to thank JLANTHEA for reporting this issue.

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
