Advisory ID
MDVSA-2008:054
Affected versions
2007.0 x86_64 , 2007.1 i586 , 2007.0 i586 , 2008.0 x86_64 , 2008.0 i586 , 2007.1 x86_64

Problem description

A vulnerability was discovered by Havoc Pennington in how the
dbus-daemon applied its security policy. A user with the ability
to connect to the dbus-daemon could possibly execute certain method
calls that they should not normally have access to.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Users will have to reboot the system once these packages have been
installed in order to prevent problems due to service dependencies
on the messagebus service.
