Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 461926
webcollage screen saver displaying pornography
Last modified: 2015-06-21 20:06:17 EDT
Description of problem:
On a development machine I use KDE. I had the screensaver set to random.
This morning I came back to that machine to find that the screensaver had kicked in and was running web collage. And the images being displayed were pornographic and very explicit.
I do *not* browse porn sites on that machine, and it does not share any data with other machines and is used solely for testing code.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not sure how to get it to redisplay those images, but I would prefer that the app allow the user to decide what sites to visit rather than randomly downloading images.
Ugh, this problem existed in kde3 (and we hacked around it), and I thought it was addressed in kde4.
Bumped the priority up. Need to address this before Fedora gets a NC17 rating.
I think the approach we're going to take is
1. include a temporary hack/workround (as we did with kde3)
2. bug xscreensaver maintainer to make webcolloage choose a better default for itself, so that xscreensaver users/consumers (like kscreensaver) don't need to add workarounds forever.
drop webcollage screen saver in kdeartwork-4_1_3-2_fc10/fc9
