High Nessus Plugin ID 19935


The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:056 (XFree86-server,xorg-x11-server).

The X server memory can be accessed my a malicious X client by exploiting a missing range check in the function XCreatePixmap(). This bug can probably be used to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the X server (root).
