==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 23.10
- Ubuntu 23.04
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in X.Org X Server.

Software Description:
- xorg-server: X.Org X11 server
- xwayland: X server for running X clients under Wayland

Details:

Jan-Niklas Sohn discovered that the X.Org X Server incorrectly handled
memory when processing the DeviceFocusEvent and ProcXIQueryPointer APIs. An
attacker could possibly use this issue to cause the X Server to crash,
obtain sensitive information, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-6816)

Jan-Niklas Sohn discovered that the X.Org X Server incorrectly handled
reattaching to a different master device. An attacker could use this issue
to cause the X Server to crash, leading to a denial of service, or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2024-0229)

Olivier Fourdan and Donn Seeley discovered that the X.Org X Server
incorrectly labeled GLX PBuffers when used with SELinux. An attacker could
use this issue to cause the X Server to crash, leading to a denial of
service. (CVE-2024-0408)

Olivier Fourdan discovered that the X.Org X Server incorrectly handled
the curser code when used with SELinux. An attacker could use this issue to
cause the X Server to crash, leading to a denial of service.
(CVE-2024-0409)

Jan-Niklas Sohn discovered that the X.Org X Server incorrectly handled
memory when processing the XISendDeviceHierarchyEvent API. An attacker
could possibly use this issue to cause the X Server to crash, or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2024-21885)

Jan-Niklas Sohn discovered that the X.Org X Server incorrectly handled
devices being disabled. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause
the X Server to crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2024-21886)
