This update fixes three memory corruptions within the X server which
could be used by local attackers with access to this display to crash
the X server and potentially execute code.

CVE-2006-6101: Integer overflow in the ProcRenderAddGlyphs function
in the Render extension for X.Org 6.8.2, 6.9.0, 7.0,
and 7.1, and XFree86 X server, allows local users to
execute arbitrary code via a crafted X protocol request
that triggers memory corruption during processing of
glyph management data structures.

CVE-2006-6102: Integer overflow in the ProcDbeGetVisualInfo function
in the DBE extension for X.Org 6.8.2, 6.9.0, 7.0,
and 7.1, and XFree86 X server, allows local users to
execute arbitrary code via a crafted X protocol request
that triggers memory corruption during processing of
unspecified data structures.

CVE-2006-6103: Integer overflow in the ProcDbeSwapBuffers function in
the DBE extension for X.Org 6.8.2, 6.9.0, 7.0, and 7.1,

that triggers memory corruption during processing of
unspecified data structures.
