Package : libgtop2
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-0235
Debian Bug : 407020

Liu Qishuai discovered that the GNOME gtop library performs insufficient

the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.0-4sarge1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
fixed in version 2.14.4-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.14.4-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgtop2 packages.
