Description Josh Bressers 2011-06-29 14:37:31 UTC
Xorg upstream alerted us to an issue in the x11perfcomp script. The script
places a '.' in the PATH environment variable which could result in an
attacker being able to execute arbitrary code if a user runs x11perfcomp
from an attacker controlled directory.
