Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : gtk+3.0 (MDVSA-2015:162)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated gtk+3.0 packages fix security vulnerability :

Clemens Fries reported that, when using Cinnamon, it was possible to
bypass the screensaver lock. An attacker with physical access to the
machine could use this flaw to take over the locked desktop session
(CVE-2014-1949).

This was fixed by including a patch for the root cause of the issue in
gtk+3.0, which came from the implementation of popup menus in
GtkWindow (bgo#722106).

This update also includes other patches from upstream to fix bugs
affecting GtkFileChooser (bgo#386569, bgo#719977) and GtkSpinButton
(bgo#709491), and a crash related to clipboard handling (bgo#719314).
