Title: OpenMotif: Multiple vulnerabilities in libXpm (GLSA 200502-07)
Date: February 07, 2005
Updated: February 25, 2005
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libXpm, which is included in OpenMotif, that can potentially lead to remote code execution.
OpenMotif provides a free version of the Motif toolkit for open source applications.
Vulnerable: < 2.2.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.2.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.1.30-r7 < 2.1.31
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows, out of bounds memory access or directory traversals, have been discovered in libXpm that is shipped as a part of the X Window System (see GLSA 200409-34 and 200411-28). OpenMotif, an application that includes this library, suffers from the same issues.
A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash applications making use of the OpenMotif toolkit, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All OpenMotif users should upgrade to the latest version:
Note: You should run 'revdep-rebuild' to ensure that all applications linked to OpenMotif are properly rebuilt.
