Description

gnome-screensaver 2.14.3, 2.22.2, 2.27.x, 2.28.0, and 2.28.3, when the X configuration enables the extend screen option, allows physically proximate attackers to bypass screen locking, access an unattended workstation, and view half of the GNOME desktop by attaching an external monitor.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-gnome-screensaver
  • suse-upgrade-gnome-screensaver-lang

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.
