An Indian security researcher has discovered the very critical bug in the X.Org server package




This passed in my stream on diaspora too. It is a very nasty bug, but in order to be able to (ab)use the bug, you need either physical access or ssh access to the device.
I am curious how long it will take to patch the bug(ger)

I was wondering if a device running wayland (fedora ships with wayland by default) instead of xorg server would be affected too. Anyone?
