Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-272 (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.

An integer overflow flaw was found in libXpm, which is used by some
applications for loading of XPM images. A possible hacker could create a
malicious XPM file that would execute arbitrary code if opened by a
victim
using an application linked to the vulnerable library. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name
CVE-2005-0605 to this issue.
