Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-396: xorg

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xorg packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated X.org packages that fix several integer overflows are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

X.org is an open source implementation of the X Window System. It
provides the basic low-level functionality that full-fledged graphical
user interfaces (GUIs) such as GNOME and KDE are designed upon.

Several integer overflow bugs were found in the way X.org parses pixmap
images. It is possible for a user to gain elevated rights by loading a
specially crafted pixmap image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-2495 to this issue.

Users of X.org should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.
