----------------------------------------------------------------------
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: XFree86 security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:044-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-044.html
Issue date: 2005-04-06
Updated on: 2005-04-06
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords: Xpm legacy keyboard controller memory leak SEGV segfault crash
CVE Names: CAN-2005-0605
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated XFree86 packages that fix a libXpm integer overflow flaw and a number of bugs are now available.

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
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

XFree86 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.

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.

XFree86 4.1.0 was not functional on systems that did not have a legacy keyboard controller (8042). During startup, the X server would attempt to update registers on the 8042 controller, but if that chip was not present, the X server would hang during startup. This new release has a workaround so that the access to those registers time out if they are not present.

A bug in libXaw could cause applications to segfault on 64-bit systems under certain circumstances. This has been fixed with a patch backported from XFree86 4.3.0.

Xlib contained a memory leak caused by double allocation, which has been fixed in XFree86 4.3.0 using backported patch.

All users of XFree86 should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.

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:
