applications.

<description>
<p>
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.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
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.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All OpenMotif users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose x11-libs/openmotif</code>
<p>
Note: You should run 'revdep-rebuild' to ensure that all applications
linked to OpenMotif are properly rebuilt.
</p>
</resolution>
