Subject: CVE request for LightDM - XDMCP denial of service


it seems that some versions of LightDM (1.14 and 1.16 series) are vulnerable
to a denial of service when XDMCP server is enabled. When that's the case, an
XDMCP request with no address will crash LightDM.

More information can be found in
31 and the bug is fixed with 1.14.4 and 1.16.6 (and development release

Can a CVE be assigned to this?

Thanks in advance,
