Advisory ID

Affected versions
2008.0 i586 , 2008.0 x86_64

Problem description

The daemon in acpid before 1.0.10 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (CPU consumption and connectivity loss) by opening
a large number of UNIX sockets without closing them, which triggers
an infinite loop (CVE-2009-0798).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

Update:

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers
