Scientific Linux Security Update : compiz on SL5.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60403
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionMost screen savers create a top-level fullscreen window to cover the desktop, and grab the input with that window. Compiz has an option to un-redirect that window, but in some cases, this breaks the grab and compromises the locked screen. (CVE-2007-3920)
SolutionUpdate the affected compiz and / or compiz-devel packages.
