Last modified: 2015-07-31 03:08:08 EDT
A security flaw was found in the way Clutter, an open source software library for creating rich graphical user interfaces, used to manage translation of hierarchy events in certain circumstances (when underlying device disappeared, causing XIQueryDevice query to throw an error). Physically proximate attackers could use this flaw for example to obtain unauthorized access to gnome-shell session right after system resume (due to gnome-shell crash).
