3. Description:

 

The libXfont packages provide the X.Org libXfont runtime library. X.Org is

an open source implementation of the X Window System.

 

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the libXfont

library parsed Glyph Bitmap Distribution Format (BDF) fonts. A malicious,

local user could exploit this issue to potentially execute arbitrary code

with the privileges of the X.Org server. (CVE-2013-6462)

 

Users of libXfont should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain

a backported patch to resolve this issue. All running X.Org server

instances must be restarted for the update to take effect.

 

4. Solution:

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.

 

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to

use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

 

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
