Description

The fbComposite function in fbpict.c in the Render extension in the X server in X.Org X11R7.1 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted request, related to an incorrect macro definition.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-xserver-xorg-core
  • ubuntu-upgrade-xvfb

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.
