                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           gtkhtml
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:093
Date:                   September 18th, 2003

Affected versions:      9.0, Corporate Server 2.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Alan Cox discovered that certain malformed messages could cause the
 Evolution mail component to crash due to a null pointer dereference in
 the GtkHTML library, versions prior to 1.1.0.
 
 The updated package provides a patched version of GtkHTML; versions of
 Mandrake Linux more recent than 9.0 do not require this fix as they
 already come with version 1.1.0.
