+ <description>
+ <p>
+ Chris Gilbert has discovered potentially exploitable buffer overflow
+ cases in libXpm that weren't fixed in previous libXpm versions.
+ </p>
+ </description>
+ <impact type="normal">
+ <p>
+ A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash X.org, potentially allowing
+ the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
+ the application.

+ </impact>
+ <workaround>
+ <p>
+ There is no known workaround at this time.
+ </p>
+ </workaround>
+ <resolution>
+ <p>
+ All X.org users should upgrade to the latest version:
+ </p>
+ <code>
+ # emerge --sync
+ # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose x11-base/xorg-x11</code>
