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.
