MDKSA-2007:023: libgtop2 Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the libgtop2 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:023 (libgtop2).

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.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
