Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-412: openmotif

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the openmotif packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated openmotif packages that fix a flaw in the Xpm image library are now
available.

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

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

An integer overflow flaw was found in libXpm, which is used to decode XPM
(X PixMap) images. A vulnerable version of this library was
found within OpenMotif. 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 name CVE-2005-0605 to
this issue.

Users of OpenMotif are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contains a backported security patch to the embedded libXpm library.
