3. Problem description:

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.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
