"Two integer overflow flaws were found in the X.Org server's EVI and
MIT-SHM modules. A malicious authorized client could exploit these
issues to cause a denial of service (crash), or potentially execute
arbitrary code with root privileges on the X.Org server.
(CVE-2007-6429)

A memory corruption flaw was found in the X.Org server's XInput
extension. A malicious authorized client could exploit this issue to
cause a denial of service (crash), or potentially execute arbitrary
code with root privileges on the X.Org server. (CVE-2007-6427)

An input validation flaw was found in the X.Org server's XFree86-Misc
extension. A malicious authorized client could exploit this issue to
cause a denial of service (crash), or potentially execute arbitrary
code with root privileges on the X.Org server. (CVE-2007-5760)

An information disclosure flaw was found in the X.Org server's TOG-CUP
extension. A malicious authorized client could exploit this issue to
cause a denial of service (crash), or potentially view arbitrary
memory content within the X server's address space. (CVE-2007-6428)

A flaw was found in the X.Org server's XC-SECURITY extension, that
could have allowed a local user to verify the existence of an
arbitrary file, even in directories that are not normally accessible
to that user. (CVE-2007-5958)"
