Details

Updated gnomemeeting packages that fix a security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

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.
