Vulnerability in X server

Anyone of you guys is aware of a local vulnerability for X server? I got a
binary by a friend of mine claiming to be a local exploit for X servers
tested on several distros like Suse 9.0 and latest release of Slackware.
I'm not used to run binaries although this comes from a pretty trusted
friend who codes exploits.
It should drop a root shell and in case of failure it crashes X server
(this according to my friend).
I'd like to have your opinions and informations.
Thank you for support.
