Description Petr Matousek 2013-02-15 16:58:15 UTC
F2 on the lock screen will cause the UI to drop to a root shell. This means the screen is not really locked and an unprivileged user that has access to the console or the ssh session can elevate his privileges.

This issue was discovered by Mike Burns of Red Hat.
