Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 2 2004-433: xorg-x11

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xorg-x11 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-433 (xorg-x11).

X.org X11 is an open source implementation of the X Window System. It
provides the basic low level functionality which full fledged
graphical user interfaces (GUIs) such as GNOME and KDE are designed
upon.

Update Information:

Several integer overflow flaws in the X.Org libXpm library used to
decode
XPM (X PixMap) images have been found and addressed. A possible hacker could
create a carefully crafted XPM file which would cause an application
to
crash or potentially execute arbitrary code if opened by a victim. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned
the name CVE-2004-0914 to this issue.

Users are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain
backported security patches as well as other bug fixes.
