Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.70297
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:1327
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:1327.

frysk is an execution-analysis technology implemented using native Java and
C++. It provides developers and system administrators with the ability to
examine and analyze multi-host, multi-process, and multithreaded systems
while they are running. frysk is released as a Technology Preview for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in HarfBuzz, an OpenType text shaping
engine used in the embedded Pango library. If a frysk application were used
to debug or trace a process that uses HarfBuzz while it loaded a
specially-crafted font file, it could cause the application to crash or,
possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
the application. (CVE-2011-3193)

Users of frysk are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct this issue. All running frysk
applications 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
