(bsc#857491)

- CVE-2014-0250: Multiple integer overflows in client/X11/xf_graphics.c in FreeRDP allowed remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via the width and height to the (1) xf_Pointer_New or (2) xf_Bitmap_Decompress function, which causes an incorrect amount of memory to be allocated.
