Solaris CDE/NIS+ screenlock Vulnerability

Solution:
You can redefine CDE's LockDisplay action so it runs /usr/openwin/bin/xlock instead of the broken CDE screenlock. Simply put the following action into the file /etc/dt/appconfig/types/C/Xlock.dt and restart your workspace manager.

ACTION LockDisplay
{
LABEL LockDisplay
TYPE COMMAND
EXEC_STRING /usr/X11R5/bin/xlock
WINDOW_TYPE NO_STDIO
DESCRIPTION The LockDisplay action locks the workstation.
}
