Synopsis :

Description :

xorg-x11-libX11 was updated to fix one security issue.

This security issue was fixed :

MakeBigReq and (2) SetReqLen macros in
include/X11/Xlibint.h in X11R6.x and libX11 before 1.6.0
allowed remote attackers to have unspecified impact via
a crafted request, which triggered a buffer overflow
(bsc#927220).
