Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66691
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0039
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
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.

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
