                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           gkrellm
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:087
Date:                   August 28th, 2003

Affected versions:      9.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A buffer overflow was discovered in gkrellmd, the server component of
 the gkrellm monitor package, in versions of gkrellm 2.1.x prior to
 2.1.14.  This buffer overflow occurs while reading data from connected
 gkrellm clients and can lead to possible arbitrary code execution as
 the user running the gkrellmd server.
 
 Updated packages are available for Mandrake Linux 9.1 which correct the
 problem.
