Fedora 20 : lightdm-1.7.15-1.fc20 (2013-16293)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

New upstream bugfix release :

- Correctly set permissions on Xauthority file.

- Correctly set $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP for non-autologin
sessions

- Fix overallocation of array for strings from greeter.

- Set XDG_VTNR=1 as a fallback if using SeatUnity
without a functioning compositor or working VT
switching, so that logind will recognize the VT as
active.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
