Description

Chris Evans found several stack and integer overflows in the libXpm code of X.Org/XFree86 :

Stack overflows (CVE-2004-0687) :

Careless use of strcat() in both the XPMv1 and XPMv2/3 xpmParseColors code leads to a stack based overflow (parse.c).

Stack overflow reading pixel values in ParseAndPutPixels (create.c) as well as ParsePixels (parse.c).

Integer Overflows (CVE-2004-0688) :

Integer overflow allocating colorTable in xpmParseColors (parse.c) - probably a crashable but not exploitable offence.

Additionally, the xorg-x11 packages have been patched with a backport from cvs to resolve a failure running the lsb-test-vsw4 test suite, which will soon be required for LSB2.0 compliance.

The updated packages have patches from Chris Evans and Matthieu Herrb to address these vulnerabilities.
