Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:061-1: gtk+

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gtk+ package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:061-1 (gtk+).


A vulnerability exists with the GTK+ toolkit in that the GTK_MODULES environment
variable permits a local user to enter a directory path to a module that does not
necessarily need to be associated with GTK+. With this, a possible hacker could create
a custom module and load it using the toolkit which could result in elevated
rights, the overwriting of system files, and the execution of malicious
code.
Update:
The packages for 7.2 and Single Network Firewall 7.2 were not signed with our
GnuPG key. Please note the changed MD5 values of the below packages.
