Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159657
CAN-2005-1686 filename format string vulnerability
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:07 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #159655 +++
gEdit is prone to a format string vulnerability. Exploitation may occur when the
program is invoked with a filename that includes malicious format specifiers.
This issue could be exploited to corrupt arbitrary regions of memory with
attacker-supplied data, potentially resulting in execution of arbitrary code in
the context of the user running the program.
This issue should also affect FC4
whats the status on this one?
Fixed months ago.
