Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : freetype, libxfont, xorg, xorg-server vulnerabilities (USN-448-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 28045

Synopsis

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

Description

Sean Larsson of iDefense Labs discovered that the MISC-XC extension of Xorg did not correctly verify the size of allocated memory. An authenticated user could send a specially crafted X11 request and execute arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2007-1003)

Greg MacManus of iDefense Labs discovered that the BDF font handling code in Xorg and FreeType did not correctly verify the size of allocated memory. If a user were tricked into using a specially crafted font, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2007-1351, CVE-2007-1352).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
