Summary     : A GNU source-level debugger for C, C++ and other languages.
Description :
GDB, the GNU debugger, allows you to debug programs written in C, C++,
and other languages, by executing them in a controlled fashion and
printing their data.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This is an fc3 update for gdb regarding security issues:

CAN-2005-1704 Integer Overflow in gdb

  This problem is that gdb's internal copy of bfd
  does not protect against heap-based overflow.

CAN-2005-1705 gdb arbitrary command execution

  This problem allows unprotected .gdbinit files
  to execute arbitrary commands during gdb startup.

Fixes for both problems are found in:

gdb-6.1post-1.20040607.43.0.1
