1. Summary:

Updated lesstif packages that fix flaws in the Xpm library are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.

This update has been rated as having Moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64

3. Problem description:

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

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

Users of LessTif should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
