Fedora 8 : xorg-x11-server- (2008-0930)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

When enabling the 'unredirect fullscreen windows' option, compiz will
unredirect fullscreen windows to improve performace. However,
unredirecting will as a side effect break any grabs on that window,
which compromises most screensavers. This X server update suppresses
this unintended side effect and restores the security of the
screensavers. See also CVE-2007-3069.

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.
