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