Description

GnomeMeeting is a tool to communicate with video and audio over the Internet.

A format string flaw was found in the way GnomeMeeting processes certain messages. If a user is running GnomeMeeting, a remote attacker who can connect to GnomeMeeting could trigger this flaw and potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (CVE-2007-1007)

Users of GnomeMeeting should upgrade to these updated packages which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
