Synopsis
========

A buffer overflow in Xlockmore might allow remote attackers to cause a
Denial of Service.

Background
==========

Xlockmore is just another screensaver application for X.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 x11-misc/xlockmore < 5.43 >= 5.43

Description
===========

A Denial of Service flaw was found in the way Xlockmore performed
the passing of arguments to the underlying localtime() call, when the
'dlock' mode was used.

Impact
======

A local attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition and
potentially obtain unauthorized access to the graphical session,
previously locked by another user.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Xlockmore users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-misc/xlockmore-5.43"
