Summary

David Airlie and Peter Hutterer of Red Hat discovered that xorg-server, the X.Org X server was vulnerable to an information disclosure flaw related to input handling and devices hotplug. When an X server is running but not on front (for example because of a VT switch), a newly plugged input device would still be recognized and handled by the X server, which would actually transmit input events to its clients on the background. This could allow an attacker to recover some input events not intended for the X clients, including sensitive information.
