GLSA-200502-07 : OpenMotif: Multiple vulnerabilities in libXpm

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 16444


The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200502-07 (OpenMotif: Multiple vulnerabilities in libXpm)

Multiple vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows, out of bounds memory access or directory traversals, have been discovered in libXpm that is shipped as a part of the X Window System (see GLSA 200409-34 and 200411-28). OpenMotif, an application that includes this library, suffers from the same issues.
Impact :

A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash applications making use of the OpenMotif toolkit, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All OpenMotif users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose x11-libs/openmotif Note: You should run 'revdep-rebuild' to ensure that all applications linked to OpenMotif are properly rebuilt.
