Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 3 2005-1032: gdb

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gdb package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-1032 (gdb).

GDB, the GNU debugger, permits you to debug programs written in C, C++,
and other languages, by executing them in a controlled fashion and
printing their data.

Update Information:

This is an fc3 update for gdb regarding 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 permits unprotected .gdbinit files
to execute arbitrary commands during gdb startup.

Fixes for both problems are found in:

gdb-6.1post-1.20040607.43.0.1
