MDKSA-2005:102: gedit Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the gedit package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:102 (gedit).

A vulnerability was discovered in gEdit where it was possible for a possible hacker
to create a file with a carefully crafted name which, when opened, executed
arbitrary code on the victim's computer. It is highly unlikely that a user
would open such a file, due to the file name, but could possibly be tricked
into opening it.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
