Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2010:040
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : gnome-screensaver
Date : February 17, 2010
Affected: 2010.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
gnome-screensaver:

gnome-screensaver 2.28.0 does not resume adherence to its activation
settings after an inhibiting application becomes unavailable on the
session bus, which allows physically proximate attackers to access
an unattended workstation on which screen locking had been intended
(CVE-2009-4641).

gnome-screensaver before 2.28.2 allows physically proximate attackers
to bypass screen locking and access an unattended workstation by moving
the mouse position to an external monitor and then disconnecting that
monitor (CVE-2010-0414).

This update provides gnome-screensaver 2.28.3, which is not vulnerable
to these issues.
