Description :

Chris Gilbert discovered a buffer overflow in the XPM library shipped
with XFree86. If a possible hacker tricked a user into loading a malicious
XPM image with an application that uses libxpm, he could exploit this
to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user opening the
image.

These overflows do not permit privilege escalation through the X
server
the overflows are in a client-side library.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- lbxproxy-4.3.0.dfsg.1-6ubuntu25.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libdps-dev-4.3.0.dfsg.1-6ubuntu25.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
