I didn`t found a Adv. related to this so I decided to write one. :]  
  
screen is vulnerable to a authentication bypass which allows local attackers  
to gain system access in case screen was locked with a Password.  
  
It has been tested on OpenBSD 4.1 + screen 4.0.3 on x86.  
  
How to reproduce:  
  
Lock screen using ctrl+x  
Choose a Password  
Confirm the Password  
  
Screen asks for a Password to unlock the screen.  
Just press ctrl+c.  
2 seconds later the screen is unlocked and you`ve access.  
  
  
Have fun!
