|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: LibXcursor: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201801-04)
Exploitable: local, remote
A vulnerability in LibXcursor might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.
X.Org X11 libXcursor runtime library.
Vulnerable: < 1.1.15
Unaffected: >= 1.1.15
Architectures: All supported architectures
It was discovered that libXcursor is prone to several heap overflows
when parsing malicious files.
A remote attacker, by enticing a user to process a specially crafted
cursor file, could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All LibXcursor users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-libs/libXcursor-1.1.15"
