Description Josh Bressers 2005-03-01 21:25:32 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #150036 +++

A potential buffer overflow from the use of unsigned integers has been found in
the XPM processing library of xorg.

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-03-01 21:27:48 UTC
This should also affect FC2

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-03-07 01:03:47 UTC
Adding to FC3Update tracker

Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2005-03-21 11:31:58 UTC
setting to moderate severity since only a subset of applications are affected by
this, and many of those do not parse untrusted xpm files.  Applications like the
gimp and others have their own xpm implementations.

Comment 4 Kristian Høgsberg 2005-04-05 14:08:33 UTC
Security updates for FC2 and FC3 have been issued:

Closing bug.
