Description

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.

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.
