Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-273
2005-03-29
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : xorg-x11
Version     : 6.8.2                      
Release     : 1.FC3.13                  
Summary     : The basic fonts, programs and docs for an X workstation.
Description :
X.org X11 is an open source implementation of the X Window System.  It
provides the basic low level functionality which full fledged
graphical user interfaces (GUIs) such as GNOME and KDE are designed
upon.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

An integer overflow flaw was found in libXpm, which is used by some
applications for loading of XPM images. An attacker could create a
malicious XPM file that would execute arbitrary code if opened by a victim
using an application linked to the vulnerable library. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CAN-2005-0605 to this issue.

Futhermore, this updates the Fedora Core 3 X.org packages to the 6.8.2
maintenance release, which includes a large number of bug fixes:
