Description

Multiple integer overflows in the Render extension in the X server 1.4 in X.Org X11R7.3 allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a (1) SProcRenderCreateLinearGradient, (2) SProcRenderCreateRadialGradient, or (3) SProcRenderCreateConicalGradient request with an invalid field specifying the number of bytes to swap in the request data, which triggers heap memory corruption.

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.
