Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2007:014: bluez-utils

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the bluez-utils package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:014 (bluez-utils).

hidd in BlueZ (bluez-utils) before 2.25 permits remote attackers to
obtain control of the (1) Mouse and (2) Keyboard Human Interface Device
(HID) via a certain configuration of two HID (PSM) endpoints, operating
as a server, aka HidAttack.
hidd is not enabled by default on Mandriva 2006.0. This update adds the
--nocheck option (disabled by default) to the hidd binary, which
defaults to rejecting connections from unknown devices unless --nocheck
is enabled.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem
