Description Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen gentoo-dev 2006-11-30 09:18:58 UTC
"infamous41md" discovered a heap buffer overflow vulnerability in libgsf, a GNOME library for reading and writing structured file formats, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

But there are also new upstream versions.

Comment 2 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-12-04 08:17:26 UTC
libgsf 1.14.2 was already in portage and since there are no open issues concerning it, I see no problem putting it up for stabilisation.
Comment 3 Stefan Cornelius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-12-04 09:09:00 UTC
arches, please test and stable libgsf-1.14.2. thanks!
