  <title>GDM: Local Denial of Service</title>
  <synopsis>
    GDM can be crashed by a local user, preventing it from managing future
    displays.

  <affected>
    <package name="gnome-base/gdm" auto="yes" arch="*">
      <unaffected range="ge">2.18.4</unaffected>

  <background>
    <p>
    GDM is the GNOME display manager.
    </p>
  </background>
  <description>
    <p>
    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.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="low">
    <p>
    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.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    Restrict the write permissions on /tmp/.gdm_socket to trusted users
    only after each GDM restart.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All GDM users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;gnome-base/gdm&quot;</code>
  </resolution>
