Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the X.Org X server. An attacker who's able to connect to an X server could cause a denial of service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 2:1.12.4-6+deb7u8.

We recommend that you upgrade your xorg-server packages.
