Summary

The remote host is missing an update for the 'pixman' package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Insight

Insight

Pixman is a pixel manipulation library for the X Window System and Cairo. An integer overflow, which led to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the way pixman handled trapezoids. If a remote attacker could trick an application using pixman into rendering a trapezoid shape with specially crafted coordinates, it could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2013-6425) Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All applications using pixman must be restarted for this update to take effect.
