Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2006-0272: openmotif

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the openmotif packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated openmotif packages that fix a security issue 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.

A number of buffer overflow flaws were discovered in OpenMotif's libUil
library. It is possible for a possible hacker to execute arbitrary code as a
victim who has been tricked into executing a program linked against
OpenMotif, which then loads a malicious User Interface Language (UIL) file.
(CVE-2005-3964)

Users of OpenMotif are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain a backported security patch to correct this issue.
