Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Updated XFree86 packages that fix a minor denial of service
vulnerability are now available.

XFree86 is an implementation of the X Window System, providing the
core graphical user interface and video drivers.

Flaws in XFree86 4.1.0 allows local or remote attackers who are able
to connect to the X server to cause a denial of service via an
out-of-bounds array index or integer signedness error when using the
GLX extension and Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI). The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
names CVE-2004-0093 and CVE-2004-0094 to these issues.

These issues do not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

All users of XFree86 are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages,
which contain a backported fix and are not vulnerable to these issues.
