CVE-2022-3550 (https://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?id=11beef0b7f1ed290348e45618e5fa0d2bffcb72e):

A vulnerability classified as critical was found in X.org Server. Affected by this vulnerability is the function _GetCountedString of the file xkb/xkb.c. The manipulation leads to buffer overflow. It is recommended to apply a patch to fix this issue. The associated identifier of this vulnerability is VDB-211051.

CVE-2022-3551 (https://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?id=18f91b950e22c2a342a4fbc55e9ddf7534a707d2):

A vulnerability, which was classified as problematic, has been found in X.org Server. Affected by this issue is the function ProcXkbGetKbdByName of the file xkb/xkb.c. The manipulation leads to memory leak. It is recommended to apply a patch to fix this issue. The identifier of this vulnerability is VDB-211052.

CVE-2022-3553 (https://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?id=dfd057996b26420309c324ec844a5ba6dd07eda3):

A vulnerability, which was classified as problematic, was found in X.org Server. This affects an unknown part of the file hw/xquartz/X11Controller.m of the component xquartz. The manipulation leads to denial of service. It is recommended to apply a patch to fix this issue. The identifier VDB-211053 was assigned to this vulnerability.

Seems like these aren't in a tag yet.

Was cherry-picked as cb4fd4d06ee8bd71b7176f58ecad70b69e3702d8 to the xwayland-22.1 branch. Not in any tag. I don't see it in the server-21.1-branch branch.

Doesn't look like all of the fixes have made it into releases, right?

Right.

FWIW, the CVEs were requested and assigned without X.Org knowing, and I think we're not really confident that they're actually issues. Maybe the Quartz one, but... it's Quartz.

Great! We'll ignore the invalid CVEs, CVE-2022-{3554,3555}

Comment 10 John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2022-12-20 16:53:09 UTC
xwayland-22.1.7 and xorg-server-21.1.6 were just released, the latter says it fixes CVE-2022-3550 and CVE-2022-3551. Indeed, patches for these are in xwayland-22.1.4 and xorg-server-21.1.6. I see the patch for CVE-2022-3553 in xorg-server-21.1.4, but not in xwayland.
