Description

Integer overflow in the ProcRenderAddGlyphs function in the Render extension for X.Org 6.8.2, 6.9.0, 7.0, and 7.1, and XFree86 X server, allows local users to execute arbitrary code via a crafted X protocol request that triggers memory corruption during processing of glyph management data structures.
