Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xorg packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated X.org packages that fix a security issue 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 are designed upon.

An integer overflow flaw in the way the X.org server processes PCF files
was discovered. A malicious authorized client could exploit this issue to
cause a denial of service (crash) or potentially execute arbitrary code
with root rights on the X.org server. (CVE-2006-3467)

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