Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0039
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0039.

The gcc and gcc4 packages include, among others, C, C++, and Java GNU
compilers and related support libraries. libgcj contains a copy of GNU
Libtool's libltdl library.

A flaw was found in the way GNU Libtool's libltdl library looked for
libraries to load. It was possible for libltdl to load a malicious library
from the current working directory. In certain configurations, if a local
attacker is able to trick a local user into running a Java application
(which uses a function to load native libraries, such as
System.loadLibrary) from within an attacker-controlled directory containing
a malicious library or module, the attacker could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the Java
application. (CVE-2009-3736)

All gcc and gcc4 users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running Java
applications using libgcj must be restarted for this update to take effect.

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
