CVE-2008-1142 - Germinal Challenges


rxvt 2.6.4 opens a terminal window on :0 if the DISPLAY environment variable is not set which might allow local users to hijack X11 connections. NOTE: it was later reported that rxvt-unicode mrxvt aterm multi-aterm and wterm are also affected. NOTE: realistic attack scenarios require that the victim enters a command on the wrong machine.
