CVE Request: lightdm
From: Marc Deslauriers <marc.deslauriers () canonical com>
Date: Mon, 05 Mar 2012 07:54:48 -0500

Could we please get a CVE assigned to the following issue:

lightdm leaks file descriptors to child processes. A local attacker can use this to bypass
intended permissions and write to the log file, cause a denial of service, or possibly
have another unknown impact.

Bug:

Thanks,

Marc.
