Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:023
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libgtop2
Date : January 18, 2007
Affected: 2007.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Stack-based buffer overflow in the glibtop_get_proc_map_s function in
libgtop before 2.14.6 (libgtop2) allows local users to cause a denial
of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a process
with a long filename that is mapped in its address space, which
triggers the overflow in gnome-system-monitor.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
