Description

Updated GNOME VFS packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3 and 4.

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

GNOME VFS is the GNOME virtual file system. It provides a modular architecture and ships with several modules that implement support for various local and remote file systems as well as numerous protocols, including HTTP, FTP, and others.

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the GNOME virtual file system when handling data returned by CDDB servers. If a user connected to a malicious CDDB server, an attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the victim's machine. (CVE-2005-0706)

Users of gnome-vfs and gnome-vfs2 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running GNOME sessions must be restarted for the update to take effect.
