Slackware 10.1 / 10.2 / current : xorg server overflow (SSA:2006-123-01)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New xorg and xorg-devel packages are available for Slackware 10.1,
10.2, and -current to fix a security issue. A typo in the X render
extension in X.Org 6.8.0 or later allows an X client to crash the
server and possibly to execute arbitrary code as the X server user
(typically this is 'root'.)
