Re: CVE request: lightdm-gtk-greeter - local DOS due to NULL pointer dereference
From: cve-assign () mitre org
Date: Tue, 7 Jan 2014 17:25:00 -0500 (EST)

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

it is trivial to crash
lightdm-gtk-greeter by entering an empty username due to a NULL
pointer dereference. When a greeter crashes the lightdm daemon
exits.
This constitutes a local denial of service which can be triggered
by any unprivileged attacker requiring the intervention of an
administrator to restart lightdm.

Use CVE-2014-0979.
