Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-05-28 13:18:07 UTC
From ${URL} :

client/X11/xf_graphics.c:xf_Pointer_New() performs a heap allocation this way:

void xf_Pointer_New(rdpContext* context, rdpPointer* pointer)
	XcursorImage ci;
	ci.width = pointer->width;
	ci.height = pointer->height;
	ci.pixels = (XcursorPixel*) malloc(ci.width * ci.height * 4);

The width and height members are read from the wire.  Both are 16 bit, but because of the multiplication 
with 4, the allocation still overflows (on 32 bit and 64 bit).

xf_Bitmap_Decompress() appears to have a similar issue.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
