openSUSE Security Update: update for xorg-x11-server ______________________________________________________________________________ Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2013:1610-1 Rating: moderate References: #816813 #843652 Cross-References: CVE-2013-4396 Affected Products: openSUSE 12.3 openSUSE 12.2 ______________________________________________________________________________ An update that solves one vulnerability and has one errata is now available. Description: Fixes the following security issue: - an authenticated X client can cause an X server to use memory after it was freed, potentially leading to crash and/or memory corruption. (CVE-2013-4396, bnc#843652) and the following bug was fixed too: - rfbAuthReenable is accessing rfbClient structure that was in most cases already freed.
