The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.
The X.Org X11 Server was updated to fix 2 security issues :
- This fix adds a workaround for overlapping stacks and
heaps in case of OOM conditions.This workaround is
necessary if the kernel is not properly adding guard or
gap-pages below the stack. (CVE-2010-2240)
- The fbComposite function in fbpict.c in the Render
extension in the X server in X.Org X11R7.1 allows remote
authenticated users to cause a denial of service (memory
corruption and daemon crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code via a crafted request, related to an
incorrect macro definition. (CVE-2010-1166)
