Description:
Previous versions of the xorg-x11 package are vulnerable to an attack
which allows authenticated X connections to provide intentionally
malformed data which the X server does not fully validate before
using. This vulnerability is known to enable a Denial of Service
attack; any process with an authenticated connection to the X
server can cause the entire X server process to crash. (It may
enable other attacks as well; the full extent of vulnerabilities
created by these faults is not completely analyzed.)
