Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mesa (MDVSA-2013:182)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated mesa packages fix multiple vulnerabilties

An out-of-bounds access flaw was found in Mesa. If an application
using Mesa exposed the Mesa API to untrusted inputs (Mozilla Firefox
does this), an attacker could cause the application to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the application (CVE-2013-1872).

It was found that Mesa did not correctly validate messages from the X
server. A malicious X server could cause an application using Mesa to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the user running the application (CVE-2013-1993).
