Description

Loïc Minier discovered that xvfb-run did not correctly keep the
X.org session cookie private. A local attacker could gain access
to any local sessions started by xvfb-run. Ubuntu 9.10 was not
affected. (CVE-2009-1573)

It was discovered that the X.org server did not correctly handle
certain calculations. A remote attacker could exploit this to
crash the X.org session or possibly run arbitrary code with root
privileges. (CVE-2010-1166)
