By default, the wrapper's configuration file only allows users whose controlling TTY (console) to start the X server, but it is possible to bypass this restriction by connecting another file (with similar tty properties) to standard input before launching the X wrapper. http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=652249 Could you allocate CVE id for this issue? Thank you, vladz.
