openSUSE Security Update : xorg-x11-server (openSUSE-SU-2013:0937-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :


- So when we VT switch back and attempt to flush the input
devices, we don't succeed because evdev won't return
part of an event, since we were only asking for 4 bytes,
we'd only get -EINVAL back. This could later cause
events to be flushed that we shouldn't have gotten. This
is a fix for CVE-2013-1940. (bnc#814653)
