Problem description

A buffer overflow was discovered in gkrellmd, the server component of the gkrellm monitor package, in versions of gkrellm 2.1.x prior to 2.1.14. This buffer overflow occurs while reading data from connected gkrellm clients and can lead to possible arbitrary code execution as the user running the gkrellmd server. Updated packages are available for Mandrake Linux 9.1 which correct the problem.
