Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2020-07-30 20:07:40 UTC
Allocation for pixmap data in AllocatePixmap() does not initialize the memory in xserver, it leads to leak uninitialize heap memory to clients. When the X server runs with elevated privileges, this can lead to privilege elevation in the client.
