From ${URL} :

Clemens Fries reported that, when using Cinnamon, it was possible to bypass the screensaver lock:

An attacker with physical access to the machine could use this flaw to take over the locked desktop 

A patch is currently not yet available.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
