infamous41md discovered a heap overflow in libgsf.  When a specially crafted OLE

This flaw should also affect FC5

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2006-12-01 09:35:57 UTC
The FC-6 release already has this fix included, FC-5 update provided

Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2006-12-07 09:11:14 UTC
rats, cvs lead me astray,
FC-6: libgsf-1.14.1-7

Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2006-12-07 18:09:50 UTC
libgsf-1.14.1-7 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
