Package : gnome-shell
CVE ID : CVE-2023-43090
Debian Bug : 1052067

Mickael Karatekin discovered that the GNOME session locking didn't
restrict a keyboard shortcut used for taking screenshots in GNOME
Screenshot which could result in information disclosure.

The oldstable distribution (bullseye) is not affected.

For the stable distribution (bookworm), this problem has been fixed in
version 43.6-1~deb12u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnome-shell packages.
