Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-1033
2005-10-27
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 4
Name : gdb
Version : 6.3.0.0
Release : 1.84
Summary : A GNU source-level debugger for C, C++, Java and other languages.
Description :
GDB, the GNU debugger, allows you to debug programs written in C, C++,
Java, and other languages, by executing them in a controlled fashion
and printing their data.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This is an fc4 update for gdb that includes security issues:

CAN-2005-1704 Integer Overflow in gdb

This problem is that gdb's internal copy of bfd
does not protect against heap-based overflow.

CAN-2005-1705 gdb arbitrary command execution

This problem allows unprotected .gdbinit files
to execute arbitrary commands during gdb startup.

Fixes for both problems are found in:

gdb-6.3.0.0-1.84

This release also contains some additional fixes
from the last update.
