MDKSA-2004:099: XFree86

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the XFree86 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:099 (XFree86).


Chris Evans found several stack and integer overflows in the libXpm code of
X.Org/XFree86:
Stack overflows (CVE-2004-0687):
Careless use of strcat() in both the XPMv1 and XPMv2/3 xpmParseColors code leads
to a stack based overflow (parse.c).
Stack overflow reading pixel values in ParseAndPutPixels (create.c) as well as
ParsePixels (parse.c).
Integer Overflows (CVE-2004-0688):
Integer overflow allocating colorTable in xpmParseColors (parse.c) - probably a
crashable but not exploitable offence.
The updated packages have patches from Chris Evans and Matthieu Herrb to address
these vulnerabilities.
