CVE-2014-7300 (retired)

Priority
Description
GNOME Shell 3.14.x before 3.14.1, when the Screen Lock feature is used,
does not limit the aggregate memory consumption of all active PrtSc
requests, which allows physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary
commands on an unattended workstation by making many PrtSc requests and
leveraging a temporary lock outage, and the resulting temporary shell
availability, caused by the Linux kernel OOM killer.
