Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: gedit
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:102
Date: June 15th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.1, 10.2, Corporate 3.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A vulnerability was discovered in gEdit where it was possible for an attacker to create a file with a carefully crafted name which, when opened, executed arbitrary code on the victim's computer. It is highly unlikely that a user would open such a file, due to the file name, but could possibly be tricked into opening it.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
