MDKSA-2005:102: gedit

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gedit package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:102 (gedit).



A vulnerability was discovered in gEdit where it was possible for a possible hacker
to create a file with a carefully crafted name which, when opened, executed
arbitrary code on the victim's computer. It is highly unlikely that a user
would open such a file, due to the file name, but could possibly be tricked
into opening it.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
