ID CVE-2008-1377
Summary The (1) SProcRecordCreateContext and (2) SProcRecordRegisterClients functions in the Record extension and the (3) SProcSecurityGenerateAuthorization function in the Security extension in the X server 1.4 in X.Org X11R7.3 allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via requests with crafted length values that specify an arbitrary number of bytes to be swapped on the heap, which triggers heap corruption.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200806-07 (X.Org X server: Multiple vulnerabilities) Regenrecht reported multiple vulnerabilities in various X server extensions via iDefense: The SProcSecurityGenerateAuthorization() and SProcRecordCreateContext() functions of the RECORD and Security extensions are lacking proper parameter validation (CVE-2008-1377). An integer overflow is possible in the function ShmPutImage() of the MIT-SHM extension (CVE-2008-1379). The RENDER extension contains several possible integer overflows in the AllocateGlyph() function (CVE-2008-2360) which could possibly lead to a heap-based buffer overflow. Further possible integer overflows have been found in the ProcRenderCreateCursor() function (CVE-2008-2361) as well as in the SProcRenderCreateLinearGradient(), SProcRenderCreateRadialGradient() and SProcRenderCreateConicalGradient() functions (CVE-2008-2362). Impact : Exploitation of these vulnerabilities could possibly lead to the remote execution of arbitrary code with root privileges, if the server is running as root, which is the default. It is also possible to crash the server by making use of these vulnerabilities. Workaround : It is possible to avoid these vulnerabilities by disabling the affected server extensions. Therefore edit the configuration file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) to contain the following in the appropriate places: Section 'Extensions' Option 'MIT-SHM' 'disable' Option 'RENDER' 'disable' Option 'SECURITY' 'disable' EndSection Section 'Module' Disable 'record' EndSection

    description Updated xorg-x11-server packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. X.Org is an open source implementation of the X Window System. It provides basic low-level functionality that full-fledged graphical user interfaces are designed upon. An input validation flaw was discovered in X.org's Security and Record extensions. A malicious authorized client could exploit this issue to cause a denial of service (crash) or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with root privileges on the X.Org server. (CVE-2008-1377) Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in X.org's Render extension. A malicious authorized client could exploit these issues to cause a denial of service (crash) or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with root privileges on the X.Org server. (CVE-2008-2360, CVE-2008-2361, CVE-2008-2362) An input validation flaw was discovered in X.org's MIT-SHM extension. A client connected to the X.org server could read arbitrary server memory. This could result in the sensitive data of other users of the X.org server being disclosed. (CVE-2008-1379) Users of xorg-x11-server should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.

    description Several local vulnerabilities have been discovered in the X Window system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2008-1377 Lack of validation of the parameters of the SProcSecurityGenerateAuthorization and SProcRecordCreateContext functions makes it possible for a specially crafted request to trigger the swapping of bytes outside the parameter of these requests, causing memory corruption. - CVE-2008-1379 An integer overflow in the validation of the parameters of the ShmPutImage() request makes it possible to trigger the copy of arbitrary server memory to a pixmap that can subsequently be read by the client, to read arbitrary parts of the X server memory space. - CVE-2008-2360 An integer overflow may occur in the computation of the size of the glyph to be allocated by the AllocateGlyph() function which will cause less memory to be allocated than expected, leading to later heap overflow. - CVE-2008-2361 An integer overflow may occur in the computation of the size of the glyph to be allocated by the ProcRenderCreateCursor() function which will cause less memory to be allocated than expected, leading later to dereferencing un-mapped memory, causing a crash of the X server. - CVE-2008-2362 Integer overflows can also occur in the code validating the parameters for the SProcRenderCreateLinearGradient, SProcRenderCreateRadialGradient and SProcRenderCreateConicalGradient functions, leading to memory corruption by swapping bytes outside of the intended request parameters.

    description Matthieu Herrb of X.Org reports : Several vulnerabilities have been found in the server-side code of some extensions in the X Window System. Improper validation of client-provided data can cause data corruption. Exploiting these overflows will crash the X server or, under certain circumstances allow the execution of arbitrary machine code. When the X server is running with root privileges (which is the case for the Xorg server and for most kdrive based servers), these vulnerabilities can thus also be used to raise privileges. All these vulnerabilities, to be exploited successfully, require either an already established connection to a running X server (and normally running X servers are only accepting authenticated connections), or a shell access with a valid user on the machine where the vulnerable server is installed.
