Posted on: 12/09/2008 02:15 AM

A new Compiz vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-688-1 December 09, 2008
compiz-fusion-plugins-main vulnerability
https://launchpad.net/bugs/247088
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10

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-fusion-plugins-main 0.5.2+git20070928-0ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
compiz-fusion-plugins-main 0.7.4-0ubuntu6.2

Ubuntu 8.10:
compiz-fusion-plugins-main 0.7.8-0ubuntu2.2

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

Details follow:

It was discovered that the Expo plugin for Compiz did not correctly
restrict the screensaver window from being moved with the mouse. A local
attacker could use the mouse to move the screensaver off the screen and
gain access to the locked desktop session underneath. Default installs
of Ubuntu were not vulnerable as Expo does not come pre-configured with
mouse bindings.


Updated packages for Ubuntu 7.10:
