Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2007-0008: 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 moderate 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.

Kimmo Hamalainen discovered a flaw in the way D-BUS processes certain
messages. It is possible for a local unprivileged D-BUS process to disrupt
the ability of another D-BUS process to receive messages. (CVE-2006-6107)

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