Description Josh Bressers 2005-12-02 14:37:43 UTC
openmotif libUil buffer overflows


xfocus have discovered two buffer overflow flaws in openmotif's libUil
library.  This overflow is going to depend on how a motif application
is passing data into the UIL library.

This issue also affects FC3

I can see where this issue has been fixed in the RHEL flavors, but I cannot
see any evidence that this issue was fixed for FC4 (or FC3) either in the
Fedora-announce-list nor in the released Fedora packages...

Were fixed packages for FC4 pushed for this issue, and I'm just missing something?

Oh - additionally.  Shouldn't RHSA-2006-0272 point to Bug 174814 instead of this
bug since this one is for FC4 (and FC3), but Bug 174814 is for RHEL?

Thanks.  -David

Comment 6 Matthew Miller 2006-07-25 23:42:58 UTC
Can someone at Red Hat revisit this as per comment #5, before the the FC4 EOL?

Comment 7 David Eisenstein 2006-07-30 06:32:33 UTC
This bug has apparently been fixed for Fedora Core 4 (see Fedora Update
Notification FEDORA-2006-854 @
but it appears FC3 was already at end of active Red Hat maintenance when this
was fixed for FC4.

For Legacy, this still needs work for FC3 and other releases.  Bug for FC3 and
earlier releases is Bug #175405.
