CAN-2005-0605 XPM buffer overflow
Last modified: 2008-01-28 11:16:51 EST
A potential buffer overflow from the use of unsigned integers has been found in
the XPM processing library of xorg.
Adding to RHEL4U2 tracker
setting to moderate severity since only a subset of applications are affected by
this, and many of those do not parse untrusted xpm files. Applications like the
gimp and others have their own xpm implementations.
