Id Description
54583 SLiM xauth X Authority Cookie Local Disclosure

SLiM contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to disclose sensitive information. The issue is triggered when the application generates the X authority file by passing the X authority cookie via the command line to xauth. It is possible that the flaw may allow disclosure to the X authority cookie by consulting the process list and gain access to the user's display resulting in a loss of confidentiality.
