Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2007:023: libgtop2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libgtop2 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:023 (libgtop2).

Stack-based buffer overflow in the glibtop_get_proc_map_s function in
libgtop before 2.14.6 (libgtop2) permits local users to cause a denial
of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a process
with a long filename that is mapped in its address space, which
triggers the overflow in gnome-system-monitor.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
