Description osi 2000-09-17 09:49:58 UTC

Has the XDMCP buffer overflow bug been fixed for gdm?  According
to the ChangeLog in /usr/share/doc/gdm-2.0beta2 it has not.
The bugtraq id is 1233.

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2000-09-17 16:39:14 UTC
The ChangeLog is from upstream, we have several dozen Red Hat patches (see the
spec file).
I believe we have the config option that enables the exploit off by default, and
there is also a security patch related to arrays and XDMCP in our package.
BugTraq shows RH 6.x as not vulnerable.I am pretty confident it's fixed but
Elliot fixed it so CC'ing him in case he wants to reopen the bug.
