High Nessus Plugin ID 25160
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200705-06 (X.Org X11 library: Multiple integer overflows)
Multiple integer overflows have been reported in the XGetPixel() function of the X.Org X11 library.
By enticing a user to open a specially crafted image, an attacker could cause a Denial of Service or an integer overflow, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with root privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.
