Description

xtrlock through 2.10 does not block multitouch events. Consequently, an attacker at a locked screen can send input to (and thus control) various programs such as Chromium via events such as pan scrolling, "pinch and zoom" gestures, or even regular mouse clicks (by depressing the touchpad once and then clicking with a different finger).

Solution(s)

  • debian-upgrade-xtrlock

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
