[slackware-security]  xorg-server (SSA:2017-279-03)

New xorg-server packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/xorg-server-1.18.3-i586-4_slack14.2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  This update fixes two security issues:
  Xext/shm: Validate shmseg resource id, otherwise it can belong to a
  non-existing client and abort X server with FatalError "client not
  in use", or overwrite existing segment of another existing client.
  Generating strings for XKB data used a single shared static buffer,
  which offered several opportunities for errors. Use a ring of
  resizable buffers instead, to avoid problems when strings end up
  longer than anticipated.
  For more information, see:
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2017-13721
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2017-13723
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/xorg-server-xephyr-1.18.3-i586-4_slack14.2.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/xorg-server-xnest-1.18.3-i586-4_slack14.2.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/xorg-server-xvfb-1.18.3-i586-4_slack14.2.txz:  Rebuilt.
