3. Description:

GNOME VFS is the GNOME virtual file system. It provides a modular
architecture and ships with several modules that implement support for
various local and remote file systems as well as numerous protocols,
including HTTP, FTP, and others.

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the GNOME virtual file system when
handling data returned by CDDB servers. If a user connected to a malicious
CDDB server, an attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on
the victim's machine. (CVE-2005-0706)

Users of gnome-vfs and gnome-vfs2 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All
running GNOME sessions must be restarted for the update to take effect.

4. Solution:

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

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

470552 - CVE-2005-0706 grip,libcdaudio: buffer overflow caused by large amount of CDDB replies
