  <title>Ruby-GNOME2: Format string error</title>
    A format string error has been discovered in Ruby-GNOME2, possibly leading
    to the execution of arbitrary code.

    Ruby-GNOME2 is a set of bindings for using GTK+ within the Ruby
    programming language.
    Chris Rohlf discovered that the "" method in
    the file gtk/src/rbgtkmessagedialog.c does not properly sanitize the
    "message" parameter before passing it to the gtk_message_dialog_new()
  <impact type="normal">
    A remote attacker could send a specially crafted string to an
    application using Ruby-GNOME2, possibly leading to the execution of
    arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    All Ruby-GNOME2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-ruby/ruby-gtk2-0.16.0-r2&quot;</code>
