Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:074: gnome-vfs2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gnome-vfs2 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:074 (gnome-vfs2).



A buffer overflow bug was found by Joseph VanAndel in the way that grip handles
data returned by CDDB servers. If a user connected to a malicious CDDB server,
a possible hacker could execute arbitrary code on the user's machine. This same
vulnerability is present in the gnome-vfs2 code.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
