Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA360] DSA-360-1 xfstt

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-360-1 xfstt

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

xfstt, a TrueType font server for the X window system was found to
contain two classes of vulnerabilities:
CVE-2003-0581: a remote attacker could send requests crafted to
trigger any of several buffer overruns, causing a denial of service or
possibly executing arbitrary code on the server with the rights
of the "nobody" user.
CVE-2003-0625: certain invalid data sent during the connection
handshake could permit a remote attacker to read certain regions of
memory belonging to the xfstt process. This information could be
used for fingerprinting, or to aid in exploitation of a different
vulnerability.
For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been
fixed in version 1.2.1-3.
For the unstable distribution (sid), CVE-2003-0581 is fixed in xfstt
1.5-1, and CVE-2003-0625 will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your xfstt package.
