vino vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

Jonathan Claudius discovered that Vino incorrectly handled closing invalid
connections. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause Vino to
consume resources, resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 13.04:
  vino                            3.6.2-0ubuntu4.1

After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make all
the necessary changes.
