lightdm (1.18.3-0ubuntu1.1) xenial-security; urgency=medium
* SECURITY UPDATE: Directory traversal allowing arbitrary directory
ownership and privilege escalation (LP: #1677924)
- debian/ Detect existing malicious guest user home dirs
before proceeding with guest user creation
- CVE-2017-7358
2016-08-12 - Robert Ancell <>
lightdm (1.18.3-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
- Fix error that caused stdin to be closed. This seems to have lots of bad
side effects (greeter not working correctly, multi-seat failing).
- Add support for greeters running inside sessions. This is enabled by
setting X-LightDM-Allow-Greeter inside the session .desktop file.
The session can then use liblightdm to connect one greeter to the
daemon. The communication is done using a socket
(/var/run/lightdm/<user>/greeter-socket) that is accessible to any
process run by that user. Consider controlling access to this socket
using a MAC system such as AppArmor. (LP: #1582242)
- Fix various memory management issues exposed by the use of in-session
* debian/patches/lp1605117.patch:
- Applied upstream

lightdm (1.18.2-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
- Don't quit on SIGUSR1, SIGUSR2 or SIGHUP (LP: #960157)
- Use MIR_SERVER_HOST_SOCKET instead of MIR_SOCKET to report compositor
socket to sessions. This used to work but no longer works in Mir 0.21
(LP: #1583624)
- Use only a single compositor on xlocal seats (LP: #1594229)
- Fix Mir greeter log filename having "(null)" in the name (LP: #1590582)
- Set XDMCP hostname field in to system hostname or configured value
(LP: #1578442)
- Improve XDMCP IPv6 address selection (LP: #1575200)
- Allow fcitx and mozc to run in guest session (LP: #1509829)
- Fix uninitialized memory errors
* debian/lightdm.dirs:
- Ensure user configuration directories /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d and
/etc/guest-session exist
* debian/
* debian/
