Description

The XEmacs package as shipped with Red Hat PowerTools 6.2 has a security problem with gnuserv and gnuclient, due to a buffer overflow and weak security. Note that this package obsoletes xemacs-mule (this is now compiled into the main binary), xemacs-static, xemacs-extras and xemacs-noX, as this is a backport of a newer xemacs package.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-xemacs
  • redhat-upgrade-xemacs-el
  • redhat-upgrade-xemacs-info
