MDKA-2006:053: dbus

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the dbus package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2006:053 (dbus).

On Mandriva Linux 2007.0, the path for D-Bus system bus socket was not
following D-Bus specification. This could cause some implementation of
the D-Bus specification to not detect the system bus correctly. This
updated package ensures the location of the system bus is exported
through DBUS_SYSTEM_BUS_ADDRESS, in compliance with D-Bus
