Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gmc packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated mc packages that resolve a buffer overflow vulnerability are now
available.

Midnight Commander is a visual shell much like a file manager.

A buffer overflow has been found in Midnight Commander's virtual filesystem
code. Specifically, a stack-based buffer overflow in vfs_s_resolve_symlink
of vfs/direntry.c permits remote attackers to execute arbitrary code during
symlink conversion.

Users of Midnight Commander should install these updated packages, which
resolve this issue.
