An update that solves one vulnerability and has one errata
is now available.

Description:

Fixes the following security issue:
- an authenticated X client can cause an X server to use
memory after it was freed, potentially leading to crash
and/or memory corruption. (CVE-2013-4396, bnc#843652) and
the following bug was fixed too:
- rfbAuthReenable is accessing rfbClient structure that was
in most cases already freed. It actually needs only
ScreenPtr, so pass it directly. (bnc#816813)
