Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xshared, XFree86-libs, xorg-x11-libs package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2004:041 (xshared, XFree86-libs, xorg-x11-libs).


The XPM library which is part of the XFree86/XOrg project is used by
several GUI applications to process XPM image files.
A source code review done by Thomas Biege of the SuSE Security-Team
revealed several different kinds of bugs.
The bug types are:
- integer overflows
- out-of-bounds memory access
- shell command execution
- path traversal
- endless loops
By providing a special image these bugs can be exploited by remote and/or
local attackers to gain access to the system or to escalate their local
rights.
