Details

Updated gnome-screensaver packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The gnome-screensaver packages contain the GNOME project's official screen saver
program. It is designed for improved integration with the GNOME desktop,
including themeability, language support, and Human Interface Guidelines (HIG)
compliance. It also provides screen-locking and fast user-switching from a
locked screen.

This update fixes the following bug:

* When a Mandatory profile was enabled, the "Lock screen when screen saver is
active" option in the Gnome Screensaver Preferences window was not disabled.
This bug could lead to security risks for users. With this update, the
lock-screen option is disabled as expected in the described scenario, thus
preventing this bug. (BZ#860643)

All users of gnome-screensaver are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which fix this bug.
