Subject: CVE-2013-0293 -- ovirt-node: Lock screen accepts F2 to drop to shell

F2 on the lock screen will cause the UI to drop to a root shell. This
means the screen is not really locked and an unprivileged user that has
access to the console or the ssh session can elevate his privileges.


This issue was discovered by Mike Burns of Red Hat.

Versions affected:
oVirt Node 2.6.0-1
