Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 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.
