The XPM library which is part of the XFree86/XOrg project is used by
several GUI applications to process XPM image files.

An integer overflow flaw was found in libXPM, which is used by some
applications for loading of XPM images. An attacker could create a
malicious XPM file that would execute arbitrary code via a negative
bitmap_unit value if opened by a victim using an application linked to
the vulnerable library.

Updated packages are patched to correct all these issues.
