openSUSE Security Update : cinnamon (openSUSE-2018-767)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 111419


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for cinnamon fixes the following issues :

Security issue fixed :

- CVE-2018-13054: Fix symlink attack vulnerability (boo#1083067).

Bug fixes :

- Update to version 3.4.6 (changes since 3.4.4) :

- osdWindow.js: Always check the theme node on first showing - an actor's width isn't necessarily filled if it hasn't been explicitly set, causing the first few activations of the OSD to not show an accurate level bar.

- cs_default: Fix an incorrect button label (but preserve translations).

- main.js: Remove an obsolete Meta enum member reference.

- workspace.js: Use our normal prototype init method.

- workspace.js: Initalise WindowClone._zoomStep to 0.

- slideshow-applet: Fix a translation.

- Create the file '~/.icons/default/index.theme' and set the selected cursor theme inside of it. This ensures other (non-gtk) applications end up using the same theme (though they are required to be restarted for these changes to take effect).

- keyboard-applet: Applet icon vanishes when moved in edit mode.

- cinnamon-json-makepot: Add keyword option, change language used by xgettext to JavaScript.

- expoThumbnail: Correct a couple of calls with mismatched argument counts.

- window-list: Set AppMenuButtons unreactive during panel edit mode.

- panel-launchers: Set PanelAppLaunchers unreactive during panel edit mode.

- windows-quick-list: Fix argument warning.

- Fix a reference to undefined actor._delegate warning.

- ui/environment: Handle undefined actors in containerClass.prototype.add.

- ui/cinnamonDBus: Handle null xlet objects in CinnamonDBus.highlightXlet.

- deskletManager: Initialise some variables and remove the variables that were initialised, probable typo


Update the affected cinnamon packages.
