Details

Updated packages are available to fix a vulnerability in WindowMaker.

[Updated 16 April 2003]
Added packages for Red Hat Linux on IBM iSeries and pSeries systems.

Window Maker is an X11 window manager which emulates the look and feel
of the NeXTSTEP graphical user interface.

Al Viro found a buffer overflow in Window Maker 0.80.0 and earlier which
may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a certain image
file that is not properly handled when Window Maker uses width and height
information to allocate a buffer. This could be exploited for example by a
user opening a malicious theme.

Users of Window Maker are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages
which contain a patch to correct this vulnerability.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
