Description Marco Benatto 2024-06-10 20:59:21 UTC
Overview
========
KSmserver, KDE's XSMP manager, incorrectly allows connections via ICE
based purely on the host, allowing all local connections. This allows
another user on the same machine to gain access to the session
manager.

A well crafted client could use the session restore feature to execute
arbitrary code as the user on the next boot.
