Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138536
CAN-2004-1056 insufficient locking checks in DRM code
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:11:38 EST
Stefan Dirsch reported to the freedesktop.org bugzilla an issue with
permissions within the DRM code.
See this url for more information, including a patch.
This issue should also affect FC2.
The DRM is part of the kernel, however the DRM source code is in
both the kernel and X sources. We should patch it in both places,
but the pressing issue is a kernel security issue rather than an
X issue. Once the kernel is patched, please pass the final patch
back to the X team so we can ensure the patch gets integrated into
the upstream X.Org CVS also for people who do actually build DRM
from the X sources.
