Current versions of the Linux Grub2 bootloader contain a vulnerability that
could allow an attacker who has physical access to a system protected with a

The vulnerability has been patched so if you have systems protected with a
Grub username/password, you'll want to apply the update as soon as possible.
Here are the details of the vulnerability:
