Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19867
SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew X.Org server packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and -current to fix a security issue. An integer overflow in the pixmap handling code may allow the execution of arbitrary code through a specially crafted pixmap. Slackware 10.2 was patched against this vulnerability before its release, but new server packages are being issued for Slackware 10.2 and -current using an improved patch, as there were some bug reports using certain programs.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
