Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 4 2005-1033: 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-2005-1033 (gdb).

GDB, the GNU debugger, permits 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 permits 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.
