MDKSA-2006:081-1: xorg-x11 Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the xorg-x11 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:081-1 (xorg-x11).

A problem was discovered in xorg-x11 where the X render extension would

mis-calculate the size of a buffer, leading to an overflow that could

possibly be exploited by clients of the X server.


Rafael Bermudez noticed that the patch for 2006 was mis-applied. This

update resolves that issue.
