    gtk+3.0 update
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    GTK+ improperly handled the menu key, possibly allowing lock screen bypass.
    
    Software Description:
    - gtk+3.0: GTK+ graphical user interface library
    
    Details:
    
    Clemens Fries discovered that GTK+ allowed bypassing certain screen locks
    by using the menu key. An attacker with physical access could possibly use
    this flaw to gain access to a locked session.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      libgtk-3-0                      3.10.8-0ubuntu1.4
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make
    all the necessary changes.
