Description

Integer overflow in the ProcDRI2GetBuffers function in the DRI2 extension in X.Org Server (aka xserver and xorg-server) 1.7.0 through 1.16.x before 1.16.3 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted request, which triggers an out-of-bounds read or write.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-x11-base-xorg-server

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
