Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51008
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2003:289
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2003:289.

XFree86 is an implementation of the X Window System providing the core
graphical user interface and video drivers. XDM is the X display manager.

Multiple integer overflows in the transfer and enumeration of font
libraries in XFree86 allow local or remote attackers to cause a denial of
service or execute arbitrary code via heap-based and stack-based buffer
overflow attacks. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0730 to this issue.

The risk to users from this vulnerability is limited because only clients
can be affected by these bugs, however in some (non-default)
configurations, both xfs and the X Server can act as clients
to remote font servers.

XDM does not verify whether the pam_setcred function call succeeds, which
may allow attackers to gain root privileges by triggering error conditions
within PAM modules, as demonstrated in certain configurations of the
pam_krb5 module. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0690 to this issue.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated XFree86 4.1.0 packages, which
contain backported security patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.

Solution:

Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
