Description

Updated libgsf packages that fix a buffer overflow flaw are now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The GNOME Structured File Library is a utility library for reading and writing structured file formats.

A heap based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way GNOME Structured File Library processes and certain OLE documents. If an person opened a specially crafted OLE file, it could cause the client application to crash or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2006-4514)

Users of GNOME Structured File Library should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.
