---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-172
2006-03-20
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : xorg-x11-server
Version     : 1.0.1                      
Release     : 9                  
Summary     : X.Org X11 X server
Description :
X.Org X11 X server

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Coverity scanned the X.Org source code for problems and
reported their findings to the X.Org development team. Upon
analysis, Alan Coopersmith, a member of the X.Org
development team, noticed a couple of serious security
issues in the findings.  In particular, the Xorg server can
be exploited for root privilege escalation by passing a path
to malicious modules using the -modulepath command line
argument.  Also, the Xorg server can be exploited to
overwrite any root writable file on the filesystem with the
-logfile command line argument.
