X.Org is an open source implementation of the X Window System. It provides
the basic low-level functionality that full-fledged graphical user
interfaces are designed upon.

Multiple input sanitization flaws were found in the X.Org GLX (OpenGL
extension to the X Window System) extension. A malicious, authorized client
could use these flaws to crash the X.Org server or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2010-4818)

An input sanitization flaw was found in the X.Org Render extension. A
malicious, authorized client could use this flaw to leak arbitrary memory
from the X.Org server process, or possibly crash the X.Org server.
