Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> CC: oss-security <oss-security@...ts.openwall.com> Subject: CVE Request -- xscreensaver -- exits when activated Hello, Josh, Steve, vendors, it was found that xscreensaver terminated, when it was activated upon launch. A local proximate attacker could use this deficiency to access resources, which should be otherwise protected by authentication. References:  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=627382  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=703483 Could you allocate a CVE id for this? Thank you & Regards, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
