Package: gdm3
Version: 2.30.0-2
Severity: grave
Tags: security
Justification: user security hole

If I enable the screen-reader in the login manager, a gnome-terminal window is
opened. There everyone can get shell access as user Debian-gdm by creating a
new profile.

The following processes are running:

gnome-terminal -x /usr/bin/orca --no-setup --disable main-window --disable
magnifier --enable speech
/usr/bin/python -c import orca.orca; orca.orca.main() --no-setup --disable
main-window --disable magnifier --enable speech

After enabling and disabling the screen reader several times,
the gnome-terminal window disappears immediately each time. Only the python
process keeps running. This behaviour continues until gdm3 is restarted.

Thanks for the report. It was a problem in orca rather than gdm3 itself,
and I have uploaded a fixed version.
