[slackware-security]  xorg server overflow (SSA:2006-123-01)

New xorg and xorg-devel packages are available for Slackware 10.1, 10.2,
and -current to fix a security issue.  A typo in the X render extension
in X.Org 6.8.0 or later allows an X client to crash the server and
possibly to execute arbitrary code as the X server user (typically this
is "root".)

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-1526

The advisory from X.Org may be found here:
