FEDORA-2018-11ed8d95e2 created by whot 2 years ago for Fedora 27
stable

libxkbcommon 0.8.2, CVE-2018-15853 through to 15864. These fix a number of memory handling issues with xkbcommon. Together with the keymap FD handling in various Wayland compositors (keymaps could be mapped rw and clients could thus replace the content) libxkbcommon's memory issues could serve as attack vector to gain access to another client. The update to 0.8.2 is a lot easier and safer than backporting all patches, given the number of other fixes not (yet?) assigned a CVE.
