    GDM is the GNOME display manager.
    The result of a g_strsplit() call is incorrectly parsed in the files
    daemon/gdm.c, daemon/gdmconfig.c, gui/gdmconfig.c and
    gui/gdmflexiserver.c, allowing for a null pointer dereference.
  <impact type="low">
    A local user could send a crafted message to /tmp/.gdm_socket that
    would trigger the null pointer dereference and crash GDM, thus
    preventing it from managing future displays.
    Restrict the write permissions on /tmp/.gdm_socket to trusted users
    only after each GDM restart.
    All GDM users should upgrade to the latest version:
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;gnome-base/gdm&quot;</code>
