2. Bug IDs fixed:
7. Problem description:
At the request of the gnumeric maintainer a new version is being released by
Red Hat which addresses potential security issues with the version of
gnumeric shipped in Red Hat Linux 6.0.
No useful data.
Am I the only one who noticed and was concerned that this alert contained
absolutely no useful information about the nature of the security problem
I don't blindly update software just because the vendor told me to, on the
assumption that "it must be good for me". I don't suspect a lot of people
on this list do either...
