 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2006:071
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : xscreensaver
 Date    : April 11, 2006
 Affected: Corporate 3.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 Rdesktop, with xscreensaver < 4.18, does not release the keyboard focus
 when xscreensaver starts, which causes the password to be entered into
 the active window when the user unlocks the screen.
 
 Updated xscreensaver packages have been patched to correct this issue.
