Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2003:009 high SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: WindowMaker security update 2003-01-07 00:00:00 EST

  None (edit)
Description Mark J. Cox 2003-01-07 06:37:23 EST
Al Viro found a buffer overflow in Window Maker 0.80.0 and earlier which
may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a certain image
file that is not properly handled when Window Maker uses width and height
information to allocate a buffer.  This could be exploited for example by a
user opening a malicious theme.

This is already in the errata queue for base OS, right?

Do we want an AS package? Someone else should make that decision.
Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2003-01-14 08:48:03 EST
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report.
