Insight

Insight

The following package is affected: xorg-server CVE-2008-1377 The (1) SProcRecordCreateContext and (2) SProcRecordRegisterClients functions in the Record extension and the (3) SProcSecurityGenerateAuthorization function in the Security extension in the X server 1.4 in X.Org X11R7.3 allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via requests with crafted length values that specify an arbitrary number of bytes to be swapped on the heap, which triggers heap corruption. CVE-2008-1379 Integer overflow in the fbShmPutImage function in the MIT-SHM extension in the X server 1.4 in X.Org X11R7.3 allows context-dependent attackers to read arbitrary process memory via crafted values for a Pixmap width and height. CVE-2008-2360 Integer overflow in the AllocateGlyph function in the Render extension in the X server 1.4 in X.Org X11R7.3 allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified request fields that are used to calculate a heap buffer size, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. CVE-2008-2361 Integer overflow in the ProcRenderCreateCursor function in the Render extension in the X server 1.4 in X.Org X11R7.3 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via unspecified request fields that are used to calculate a glyph buffer size, which triggers a dereference of unmapped memory. CVE-2008-2362 Multiple integer overflows in the Render extension in the X server 1.4 in X.Org X11R7.3 allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a (1) SProcRenderCreateLinearGradient, (2) SProcRenderCreateRadialGradient, or (3) SProcRenderCreateConicalGradient request with an invalid field specifying the number of bytes to swap in the request data, which triggers heap memory corruption.
