CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : gtkhtml
SUMMARY   : Buffer overflow vulnerability
DATE      : 2003-09-12 10:13:00
ID        : CLA-2003:737
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8, 9

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 The gtkhtml library is used by Evolution and other Gnome programs to
 render basic HTML. Evolution is a Gnome-based personal information
 manager (PIM) which includes e-mail, address book, calendar and other
 integrated features.
 
 Alan Cox discovered two vulnerabilities (CAN-2003-0541[1] and
 CAN-2003-0133[2]) in the gtkhtml library. These vulnerabilities can
 be exploited to at least crash programs linked to gtkhtml by using
 malformed HTML. In the case of Evolution, a remote attacker can use
 an HTML mail as an attack vector.
 
 This update includes fixes for both vulnerabilities. Please note that
 the second one (CAN-2003-0133) affects only the gtkhtml version
 distributed with Conectiva Linux 9.


SOLUTION
 All users should upgrade. Please note that in order to load the fixed
 library, it is necessary to restart all applications linked to it
 after the upgrade.
