Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0519
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0519.

X.org is an open source implementation of the X Window System. It provides
the basic low-level functionality that full-fledged graphical user
interfaces are designed upon.

Users of X.org should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch and are not vulnerable to these issues.

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