Description

Stack-based buffer overflow in the glibtop_get_proc_map_s function in libgtop before 2.14.6 (libgtop2) allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a process with a long filename that is mapped in its address space, which triggers the overflow in gnome-system-monitor.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libgtop
  • suse-upgrade-libgtop-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-libgtop-64bit
  • suse-upgrade-libgtop-devel
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
