CAN-2003-0730 font lib XFree86 integer overflows
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
Multiple integer overflows in the transfer and enumeration of
font libraries for XFree86 4.3.0 allow local or remote
attackers to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary
code via heap-based and stack-based buffer overflow attacks.
The risk to users is limited because only clients can be
affected by these bugs, however in some (non default)
configurations, both xfs and the X Server can act as clients
to remote font servers.
Update currently being tested.
