CVE: CVE-2013-1872 , CVE-2013-1993
An out-of-bounds access flaw was found in Mesa. If an application using Mesa exposed the Mesa API to untrusted inputs (Mozilla Firefox does this), an attacker could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application (CVE-2013-1872). It was found that Mesa did not correctly validate messages from the X server. A malicious X server could cause an application using Mesa to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application (CVE-2013-1993).
