Details

Updated lesstif packages that fix flaws in the Xpm library are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.

This update has been rated as having Moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

LessTif provides libraries which implement the Motif industry standard
graphical user interface.

An integer overflow flaw was found in libXpm; a vulnerable version of this
library is found within LessTif. An attacker could create a malicious XPM
file that would execute arbitrary code if opened by a victim using an
application linked to LessTif. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0605 to this issue.

Users of LessTif should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.
