Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200502-07
(OpenMotif: Multiple vulnerabilities in libXpm)

Multiple vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows, out of bounds
memory access or directory traversals, have been discovered in libXpm
that is shipped as a part of the X Window System (see GLSA 200409-34
and 200411-28). OpenMotif, an application that includes this library,
suffers from the same issues.

Impact :

A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash applications making use of the
OpenMotif toolkit, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All OpenMotif users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose x11-libs/openmotif
Note: You should run 'revdep-rebuild' to ensure that all applications
linked to OpenMotif are properly rebuilt.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
