Ilja van Sprundel of IOActive discovered several security issues in multiple
components of the graphics stack and the related libraries: Various
integer overflows, sign handling errors in integer conversions, buffer
overflows, memory corruption and missing input sanitising may lead to
privilege escalation or denial of service (CVE-2013-1981, CVE-2013-1982,
CVE-2013-1983, CVE-2013-1984, CVE-2013-1985, CVE-2013-1986, CVE-2013-1987,
CVE-2013-1988, CVE-2013-1989, CVE-2013-1990, CVE-2013-1991, CVE-2013-1992,
CVE-2013-1993, CVE-2013-1994, CVE-2013-1995, CVE-2013-1996, CVE-2013-1997,
CVE-2013-1998, CVE-2013-1999, CVE-2013-2000, CVE-2013-2001, CVE-2013-2002,
CVE-2013-2003, CVE-2013-2004, CVE-2013-2005, CVE-2013-2062, CVE-2013-2063,
CVE-2013-2064, CVE-2013-2066).

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).
