Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2010-04-22 17:27:25 UTC
CVE-2010-0732 (
  gdk/gdkwindow.c in GTK+ before 2.18.5, as used in gnome-screensaver
  before 2.28.1, performs implicit paints on windows of type
  GDK_WINDOW_FOREIGN, which triggers an X error in certain
  circumstances and consequently allows physically proximate attackers
  to bypass screen locking and access an unattended workstation by
  pressing the Enter key many times.
Comment 1 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2010-04-22 17:28:59 UTC
Gnome: We still have some older versions in the tree.
Can they be removed? If not, what needs to be done first?
