The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability was discovered in the pixmap allocation handling of
the X server that can lead to local privilege escalation. By
allocating a huge pixmap, a local user could trigger an integer
overflow that resulted in a memory allocation that was too small for
the requested pixmap, leading to a buffer overflow which could then be
exploited to execute arbitrary code with full root privileges.
The updated packages have been patched to address these issues.
Update the affected packages.
