Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libXpm, which is
included in OpenMotif, that can potentially lead to remote code
execution.

Background
==========

OpenMotif provides a free version of the Motif toolkit for open source
applications.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package             /  Vulnerable  /                   Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  x11-libs/openmotif       < 2.2.3                         >= 2.2.3

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows, out of bounds
memory access or directory traversals, have been discovered in libXpm
that is shipped as a part of the X Window System (see GLSA 200409-34
and 200411-28). OpenMotif, an application that includes this library,
suffers from the same issues.

Impact
======

A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash applications making use of the
OpenMotif toolkit, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All OpenMotif users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-libs/openmotif-2.2.3"
