|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: X.Org: Buffer overflow in XRender extension (GLSA 200605-02)
Date: May 02, 2006
A buffer overflow in the XRender extension potentially allows any X.Org
user to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
X.Org is X.Org Foundation's public implementation of the X Window
Vulnerable: < 6.8.2-r7
Unaffected: >= 6.8.2-r7
Architectures: All supported architectures
X.Org miscalculates the size of a buffer in the XRender extension.
An X.Org user could exploit this issue to make the X server
execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All X.Org users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r7"
