Fedora Core 3 : xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.FC3.13 (2005-273)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

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 if opened by a
victim using an application linked to the vulnerable library. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-0605 to this issue.

Furthermore, this updates the Fedora Core 3 X.org packages to the
6.8.2 maintenance release, which includes a large number of bug
fixes :

description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
