Fedora 12 : gnome-screensaver-2.28.2-1.fc12 (2010-1556)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

gnome-screensaver currently doesn't deal with monitors getting removed
properly. If the unlock dialog is on the removed monitor then the
unlock dialog and its associated keyboard grab are not moved to an
existing monitor when the monitor removal is processed. This means
that users can gain access to the locked system by placing the mouse
pointer on an external monitor and then disconnect the external
monitor. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=609337

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.
