Since late 2012 I've been looking for security bugs in X.org code. Both Server and Client code. In this talk I will give an architectural overview of all the discovered attack surfaces which would include:
- client network protocol parser
- server network protocol parser
- data passed on from Server to extensions
- Shared memory
I will also discuss security issues found therein. I will also discuss interaction with various developers and how that process went.
