Description Jeff Johnston 2005-10-26 16:35:25 EDT
gdb before 6.3 searches the current working directory to load the
.gdbinit configuration file, which allows local users to execute
arbitrary commands as the user running gdb.

Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2005-10-27 13:08:11 EDT
From User-Agent: XML-RPC

gdb-6.1post-1.20040607.43.0.1 has been pushed for FC3, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 16:27:31 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
