MDKSA-2006:100: gdm Vulnerability Scan


Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the gdm package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:100 (gdm).



A vulnerability in gdm could allow a user to activate the gdm setup

program if the administrator configured a gdm theme that provided a

user list. The user could do so by choosing the setup option from

the menu, clicking the user list, then entering his own password

instead of root's.



The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
