Vulnerability Assessment Summary
LessTif: Integer and stack overflows in libXpm

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200410-09
(LessTif: Integer and stack overflows in libXpm)


Chris Evans has discovered various integer and stack overflows in libXpm,
which is shipped as a part of the X Window System. LessTif, an application
that includes this library, is susceptible to the same issues.

Impact

A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash applications that are linked
against libXpm, such as LessTif, potentially permiting the execution of
arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
