Description Josh Bressers 2004-10-08 10:21:15 EDT
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in (1) xpmParseColors in
parse.c, (2) ParseAndPutPixels in create.c, and (3) ParsePixels in
parse.c for libXpm before 6.8.1 allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a malformed XPM image file.

This library itself is contained in lesstif.
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2004-10-08 10:48:01 EDT
RHEL3 does not contain lesstif, therefore is not affected by this issue.
