(BZ#1401667, BZ#1401668, BZ#1401669, BZ#1401670, BZ#1401671, BZ#1401672, BZ#1401673, BZ#1401675, BZ# 1401676, BZ#1401677, BZ#1401678, BZ#1401679, BZ#1401680, BZ#1401681, BZ# 1401682, BZ#1401683, BZ#1401685, BZ#1401690, BZ#1401752, BZ#1401753, BZ# 1401754, BZ#1402560, BZ#1410477, BZ#1411390, BZ#1411392, BZ#1411393, BZ# 1411452, BZ#1420224)
Security Fix(es) :
* An integer overflow flaw leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found in libXpm. An attacker could use this flaw to crash an application using libXpm via a specially crafted XPM file.
* It was discovered that libXdmcp used weak entropy to generate session keys. On a multi-user system using xdmcp, a local attacker could potentially use information available from the process list to brute force the key, allowing them to hijack other users' sessions.
* It was discovered that libICE used a weak entropy to generate keys.
A local attacker could potentially use this flaw for session hijacking using the information available from the process list. (CVE-2017-2626)
