Package : yelp Date : August 20, 2008 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1

 Problem Description:

 A format string vulnerability was discovered in yelp after version  2.19.90 and before 2.24 that could allow remote attackers to execute  arbitrary code via format string specifiers in an invalid URI on the  command-line or via URI helpers in Firefox, Evolution, or possibly  other programs (CVE-2008-3533).  

 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
