Description

Updated gcc packages that fix a security issue and another bug are now available. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The gcc packages include C, C++, Java, Fortran 77, Objective C, and Ada 95 GNU compilers and related support libraries. Jurgen Weigert discovered a directory traversal flaw in fastjar. An attacker could create a malicious JAR file which, if unpacked using fastjar, could write to any files the victim had write access to. (CVE-2006-3619) These updated packages also fix a reload internal compiler error with -fnon-call-exceptions option. All users of gcc should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
