The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
USN-537-1 fixed vulnerabilities in gnome-screensaver. The fixes were
incomplete, and only reduced the scope of the vulnerability, without
fully solving it. This update fixes related problems in compiz.
Jens Askengren discovered that gnome-screensaver became confused when
running under Compiz, and could lose keyboard lock focus. A local
attacker could exploit this to bypass the user's locked screen saver.
Update the affected packages.
