Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-31 19:48:24 UTC
According to dbkerkholz, "the mit-shm patch only does the security test on pixmaps of a certain bit depth rather than all of them"
This means CVE-2007-6429 is incompletely fixed in bug 204362.;a=commit;h=be6c17fcf9efebc0bbcc3d9a25f8c5a2450c2161

There is also a better fix for CVE-2007-3920, "Don't break grab and focus state for a window when redirecting it." -- The fix we had in bug 196878 is "a huge hack" to quote donnie again ;-);a=commit;h=a6a7fadbb03ee99312dfb15ac478ab3c414c1c0b

I'm going to go ahead and add release@ so I can track this one.

Donnie has just bumped the version in the tree.

I would handle this as an erratum to the previous GLSA, no?
Comment 13 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-12 10:34:07 UTC
Sure I wasn' thinking straight. Could someone with ssh access to finch delete the draft I made?

This bug was fixed in release snapshot.
