Package        : libgtop2
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-0235
Debian Bug     : 407020

Liu Qishuai discovered that the GNOME gtop library performs insufficient
sanitising when parsing the system's /proc table, which may lead to
the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.0-4sarge1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
fixed in version 2.14.4-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.14.4-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgtop2 packages.
