New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote AIX host is missing a security patch.

Description

Use-after-free vulnerability in the doImageText function in dix/dixfonts.c in the xorg-server module before 1.14.4 in X.Org X11 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted ImageText request that triggers memory-allocation failure.

Solution

Install the appropriate interim fix.
