Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2013:0937-1
Rating: moderate
References: #814653
Cross-References: CVE-2013-1940
Affected Products:
openSUSE 12.3
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.

Description:


-
U_xf86-fix-flush-input-to-work-with-Linux-evdev-device.patch

* So when we VT switch back and attempt to flush the
input devices, we don't succeed because evdev won't
return part of an event, since we were only asking for
4 bytes, we'd only get -EINVAL back. This could later
cause events to be flushed that we shouldn't have
gotten. This is a fix for CVE-2013-1940. (bnc#814653)
