Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-172
2006-03-20
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 5
Name : xorg-x11-server
Version : 1.0.1
Release : 9
Summary : X.Org X11 X server
Description :
X.Org X11 X server

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

Coverity scanned the X.Org source code for problems and
reported their findings to the X.Org development team. Upon
analysis, Alan Coopersmith, a member of the X.Org
development team, noticed a couple of serious security
issues in the findings. In particular, the Xorg server can
be exploited for root privilege escalation by passing a path
to malicious modules using the -modulepath command line
argument. Also, the Xorg server can be exploited to
overwrite any root writable file on the filesystem with the
-logfile command line argument.
