Reporter Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2019 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2019 and is owned by Tenable, Inc. or an Affiliate thereof.

Description

Derek Abdine discovered that the NVIDIA Xorg driver did not correctly verify the size of buffers used to render text glyphs. When displaying very long strings of text, the Xorg server would crash. If a user were tricked into viewing a specially crafted series of glyphs, this flaw could be exploited to run arbitrary code with root privileges.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
