3. Problem description:

OpenMotif provides libraries which implement the Motif industry standard
graphical user interface.

During a source code audit, Chris Evans and others discovered several stack
overflow flaws and an integer overflow flaw in the libXpm library used to
decode XPM (X PixMap) images. A vulnerable version of this library was
found within OpenMotif. An attacker could create a carefully crafted
XPM file which would cause an application to crash or potentially execute
arbitrary code if opened by a victim.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names
CAN-2004-0687, CAN-2004-0688, and CAN-2004-0914 to these issues.

Users of OpenMotif are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain backported security patches to the embedded libXpm library.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:

    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ for more info):

134631 - CAN-2004-0687 libxpm flaws affect OpenMotif (CAN-2004-0688, CAN-2004-0914)
