Updated vino packages fix CVE-2013-5745

Publication date: 09 Oct 2013
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 2 , 3
CVE: CVE-2013-5745

Description

Updated vino package fixes security vulnerability:

The vino_server_client_data_pending function in vino-server.c in GNOME Vino
3.7.3 and earlier, when encryption is disabled, does not properly clear client
data when an error causes the connection to close during authentication, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop, CPU and
disk consumption) via multiple crafted requests during authentication
(CVE-2013-5745).
