Description Josh Bressers 2008-05-06 14:40:07 EDT
iDefense reported several flaws in the X.org Record and Security extensions. 
The iDefense advisory states:

    Multiple vulnerabilities are present in the Record and Security
    extensions. In both cases, untrusted values are taken from a client
    request, and used to swap the byte order of heap memory that follows
    the client request. Since the number of bytes to swap is not properly
    validated, it is possible to corrupt heap memory located after the
    request. The following functions contain vulnerable code:

    SProcSecurityGenerateAuthorization() SProcRecordCreateContext()
    SProcRecordRegisterClients()
