Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200710-11 (X Font Server: Multiple Vulnerabilities)

iDefense reported that the xfs init script does not correctly handle a
race condition when setting permissions of a temporary file
(CVE-2007-3103). Sean Larsson discovered an integer overflow
vulnerability in the build_range() function possibly leading to a
heap-based buffer overflow when handling

(X Font Server: Multiple Vulnerabilities)

    iDefense reported that the xfs init script does not correctly handle a
    race condition when setting permissions of a temporary file
    (CVE-2007-3103). Sean Larsson discovered an integer overflow
    vulnerability in the build_range() function possibly leading to a
    heap-based buffer overflow when handling 'QueryXBitmaps' and
    'QueryXExtents' protocol requests (CVE-2007-4568). Sean Larsson also
    discovered an error in the swap_char2b() function possibly leading to a
    heap corruption when handling the same protocol requests
    (CVE-2007-4990).
  
Impact :

    The first issue would allow a local attacker to change permissions of
    arbitrary files to be world-writable by performing a symlink attack.
    The second and third issues would allow a local attacker to execute
    arbitrary code with privileges of the user running the X Font Server,
    usually xfs.
  
Workaround :

    There is no known workaround at this time."
