Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-102: dbus

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the dbus packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated dbus packages that fix a security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

D-BUS is a system for sending messages between applications. It is
used both for the systemwide message bus service, and as a
per-user-login-session messaging facility.

Dan Reed discovered that a user can send and listen to messages on another
user's per-user session bus if they know the address of the socket. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2005-0201 to this issue. In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, the
per-user session bus is only used for printing notifications, therefore
this issue would only permit a local user to examine or send additional
print notification messages.

Users of dbus are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct this issue.
