Description

The translate_hierarchy_event function in x11/clutter-device-manager-xi2.c in Clutter, when resuming the system, does not properly handle XIQueryDevice errors when a device has "disappeared," which causes the gnome-shell to crash and allows physically proximate attackers to access the previous gnome-shell session via unspecified vectors.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-clutter
  • suse-upgrade-clutter-devel
  • suse-upgrade-clutter-lang
  • suse-upgrade-libclutter-1_0-0
  • suse-upgrade-libclutter-1_0-0-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-typelib-1_0-clutter-1_0

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.
