Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:056
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : xorg-x11
Date : March 20, 2006
Affected: 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Versions of Xorg 6.9.0 and greater have a bug in xf86Init.c, which
allows non-root users to use the -modulepath, -logfile and -configure
options. This allows loading of arbitrary modules which will execute as
the root user, as well as a local DoS by overwriting system files.

Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
