    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.

    version 2.6.0-4sarge1.
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
    fixed in version 2.14.4-3.
