GNU Screen contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to gain access to a locked screen session. The issue is triggered when a screen session is locked using "ctrl-a x:", and an attacker types CTRL-C at the password prompt to abort the lock mechanism. Typing "screen -r" to restore the detached screen will grant access without prompting for the password.
