Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-03-01 16:27:48 EST
This should also affect FC2
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-03-06 20:03:47 EST
Adding to FC3Update tracker
Comment 3 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2005-03-21 06:31:58 EST
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.
Comment 4 Kristian Høgsberg 2005-04-05 10:08:33 EDT
Security updates for FC2 and FC3 have been issued:
