GNOME Display Manager GDMChooser Local Format String Vulnerability

GNOME Display Manager (GDM) is prone to a local format-string vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before including it in the format-specifier argument of a formatted-printing function.

A local attacker may exploit this issue to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of the affected application.
