Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA301] DSA-301-1 libgtop

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-301-1 libgtop

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The gtop daemon, used for monitoring remote machines, contains a
buffer overflow which could be used by a possible hacker to execute
arbitrary code with the rights of the daemon process. If started
as root, the daemon process drops root rights, assuming uid and
gid 99 by default.
This bug was previously fixed in DSA-098, but one of the patches was
not carried over to later versions of libgtop.
For the stable distribution (woody), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.13-3.1.
For the old stable distribution (potato), this problem was fixed in
DSA-098.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.13-4.
We recommend that you update your libgtop package.
