Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2013:0898 :

Updated mesa packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

Mesa provides a 3D graphics API that is compatible with Open Graphics Library (OpenGL). It also provides hardware-accelerated drivers for many popular graphics chips.

It was found that Mesa did not correctly validate messages from the X server. A malicious X server could cause an application using Mesa to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2013-1993)

All users of Mesa are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running applications linked against Mesa must be restarted for this update to take effect.
