Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 139777
Xscreensaver shows questionable images in WebCollage

Description of problem:
I'm running the latest Fedora Core 3 on my desktop here at work and I
left for lunch. When I came back Xscreensaver had kicked on and the
screensaver "web collage" was running. Along with various strange
images from the Internet on my screen was a highly pornographic image.
It was very work INAPPROPRIATE. I immediately cleared the screen, and
I was hoping that no one else saw what was on my screen.
There has to be some patch, or some filter that can be applied to this
package at the RPM level to make sure that this DOESN'T happen to
someone else. Someone could totally innocently install FC3 and get
this screensaver and never know why.
The old versions of Xscreensaver used to do random image search on
news sites which were much more likely to return CLEAN images. Until
then I had to manually remove that executable file lest this happen again.
Don't show porn!
