This advisory has been superseded by DLA-120-2. For reference, the original advisory text follows.

Ilja van Sprundel of IOActive discovered several security issues in the X server, which may lead to privilege escalation or denial of service.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 2:1.7.7-18+deb6u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xorg-server packages.
