Subject: Re:  CVE Request: openssh local users may hijack
 forwarded X connections

Name: CVE-2008-1483
Status: Candidate
Reference: CONFIRM:

OpenSSH 4.3p2, and probably other versions, allows local users to
hijack forwarded X connections by causing ssh to set DISPLAY to :10,
even when another process is listening on the associated port, as
demonstrated by opening TCP port 6010 (IPv4) and sniffing a cookie
sent by Emacs.
