<p>
LessTif is a clone of OSF/Motif, which is a standard user
interface toolkit available on Unix and Linux. OpenMotif also provides
a free version of the Motif toolkit for open source applications.

<p>
Chris Gilbert discovered potentially exploitable buffer overflow
cases in libXpm that weren't fixed in previous libXpm security
advisories.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash applications making use
of the OpenMotif or LessTif toolkits, 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 an unaffected version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose x11-libs/openmotif</code>
<p>
All LessTif users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=x11-libs/lesstif-0.94.0-r2&quot;</code>
</resolution>
