Subject: xscreensaver buffer overflow

On an article on c.s.u Kim San Su <> (Message-ID:
<>) states he has found a buffer
overflow in xscreensaver.

When you use xscreensaver to lock your workstaion and you enter more than
80 characters at the password input windows, xscreensaver will die and you
will have access to the X desktop.
