openSUSE Security Update : xorg-x11-server (openSUSE-SU-2013:1610-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 75179
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 openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

Fixes the following security issue :

- an authenticated X client can cause an X server to use memory after it was freed, potentially leading to crash and/or memory corruption. (CVE-2013-4396, bnc#843652) and the following bug was fixed too :

- rfbAuthReenable is accessing rfbClient structure that was in most cases already freed. It actually needs only ScreenPtr, so pass it directly. (bnc#816813)

Solution

Update the affected xorg-x11-server packages.
