Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0235
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0235.

that would crash an application or, possibly, allow arbitrary code
execution with the privileges of the application calling the Speex library.
(CVE-2008-1686)

All users of speex are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
