Description Josh Bressers 2006-08-29 16:54:49 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #204548 +++

iDefense reported two integer overflow vulnerabilities in X's CID font parser. 
This could allow an attacker with access to the xserver to execute arbitrary
code with the same privileges as the X server (root).
