|| ||GDM2 2.18.4 (stable), the "Time And Again" Release|
|| ||Wed, 01 Aug 2007 17:13:16 -0500|
If you have no clue what GDM is, refer to the documentation links
at the bottom of this announcement.
The 2.18.4 release is a stable release of the GNOME Display Manager
(GDM) program with the following bug fixes and improvements:
- Fix for CVE-2007-3381, a denial of service attack where the
user can crash the GDM daemon with a carefuly crafted
GDM sockets command and cause GDM to stop managing future
displays. GDM now is much better about safegarding against
NULL values returned from g_strsplit calls. Credit given to
to "JLANTHEA". (Brian Cameron)
- Remove setting hints.ai_family != AF_INET6 to fix bug #455190.
- Translation updates (Priit Laes)
Note: GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen <mkp mkp net>.
Much work has been done on GDM2 by George Lebl; and Brian Cameron
now currently shares maintainership duties with the Queen of England.
Note2: If installing from the tarball do note that make install
overwrites most of the setup files, all except gdm.conf. It will
however save backups with the .orig extension first.
Note3: Note3 has been depracated ...
