Mandriva Advisories MDKSA-2006:071 : xscreensaver


Updated xscreensaver packages fix clear-text password vulnerability

April 11th, 2006


Rdesktop, with xscreensaver < 4.18, does not release the keyboard focus when xscreensaver starts, which causes the password to be entered into the active window when the user unlocks the screen. Updated xscreensaver packages have been patched to correct this issue.



The released versions of Mandriva GNU/Linux affected are:

  • CS3.0
