CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2007:0157 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.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the XGetPixel() function. Improper use of this function could cause an application calling it to function improperly, possibly leading to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2007-1667)

Users of the X11 server should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.
