Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-05-03 05:20:42 UTC
An integer overflow leading to heap-based buffer overflow was found in the XineramaQueryScreens() function of libXinerama, X.Org X11 libXinerama runtime library. When a X client is connected to a malicious X server, (modified to return invalid values), it can cause arbirary code execution with the privileges of the user running the X client.
