3. Description:

The GNOME Display Manager (GDM) provides the graphical login screen shown
shortly after boot up, log out, and when user-switching.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: gdm
(3.22.3), gnome-session (3.22.3). (BZ#1386862, BZ#1386957)

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that gdm could crash due to a signal handler dispatched to
an invalid conversation. An attacker could crash gdm by holding the escape
key when the screen is locked, possibly bypassing the locked screen.
(CVE-2015-7496)
