Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:199: libx11

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libx11 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:199 (libx11).

The Xinput module (modules/im/ximcp/imLcIm.c) in X.Org libX11 1.0.2 and
1.0.3 opens a file for reading twice using the same file descriptor,
which causes a file descriptor leak that permits local users to read
files specified by the XCOMPOSEFILE environment variable via the
duplicate file descriptor.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
