Chris Evans found several stack and integer overflows in the libXpm
code of X.Org/XFree86 :
Stack overflows (CVE-2004-0687) :
Careless use of strcat() in both the XPMv1 and XPMv2/3 xpmParseColors
code leads to a stack based overflow (parse.c).
Stack overflow reading pixel values in ParseAndPutPixels (create.c) as
well as ParsePixels (parse.c).
Integer Overflows (CVE-2004-0688) :
Integer overflow allocating colorTable in xpmParseColors (parse.c) -
probably a crashable but not exploitable offence.
Additionally, the xorg-x11 packages have been patched with a backport
from cvs to resolve a failure running the lsb-test-vsw4 test suite,
which will soon be required for LSB2.0 compliance.
The updated packages have patches from Chris Evans and Matthieu Herrb
to address these vulnerabilities.
Update the affected packages.
