Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDVSA-2009:039 (gedit)

announced via advisory MDVSA-2009:039.

(CVE-2009-0314).

This update provides fix for that vulnerability.

Affected: 2008.1, 2009.0

Solution:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
