=========================================================== 
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-537-2          November 02, 2007
compiz vulnerability
CVE-2007-3920
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.10:
  compiz-core                     1:0.6.0+git20071008-0ubuntu1.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart your session to affect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

USN-537-1 fixed vulnerabilities in gnome-screensaver. The fixes were
incomplete, and only reduced the scope of the vulnerability, without
fully solving it. This update fixes related problems in compiz.

Original advisory details:

 Jens Askengren discovered that gnome-screensaver became confused when
 running under Compiz, and could lose keyboard lock focus. A local attacker
 could exploit this to bypass the user's locked screen saver.


Updated packages for Ubuntu 7.10:
