Ubuntu 5.10 : bluez-utils vulnerability (USN-413-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

A flaw was discovered in the HID daemon of bluez-utils. A remote
attacker could gain control of the mouse and keyboard if hidd was
enabled. This does not affect a default Ubuntu installation, since
hidd is normally disabled.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected bluez-cups, bluez-pcmcia-support and / or
bluez-utils packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.4
(CVSS2#AV:A/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
