Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-004: lesstif

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the lesstif packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated lesstif package that fixes flaws in the Xpm library is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.

LessTif provides libraries which implement the Motif industry standard
graphical user interface.

During a source code audit, Chris Evans discovered several stack overflow
flaws and an integer overflow flaw in the libXpm library used to decode XPM
(X PixMap) images. A vulnerable version of this library was found within
Lesstif. 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 names CVE-2004-0687,CVE-2004-0688, and
CVE-2004-0914 to these issues.

Users of LessTif are advised to upgrade to this erratum package, which
contains backported security patches to the embedded libXpm library.
