Detail

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10 Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.10:
libgtop2-5 2.12.0-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libgtop2-7 2.14.1-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
libgtop2-7 2.14.4-0ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Liu Qishuai discovered a buffer overflow in the /proc parsing routines in libgtop. By creating and running a process in a specially crafted long path and tricking an user into running gnome-system-monitor, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Title: 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.
