CVE-2013-1940

Status Candidate

Overview

X.Org X server before 1.13.4 and 1.4.x before 1.14.1 does not properly restrict access to input events when adding a new hot-plug device, which might allow physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information, as demonstrated by reading passwords from a tty.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-1620-02
Posted Nov 21, 2013
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-1620-02 - X.Org is an open source implementation of the X Window System. It provides the basic low-level functionality that full-fledged graphical user interfaces are designed upon. A flaw was found in the way the X.org X11 server registered new hot plugged devices. If a local user switched to a different session and plugged in a new device, input from that device could become available in the previous session, possibly leading to information disclosure. This issue was found by David Airlie and Peter Hutterer of Red Hat.
