Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

USN-1138-1 fixed a vulnerability in DBus-GLib. NetworkManager and
ModemManager required rebuilding against the updated DBus-GLib to
incorporate the changes.

It was discovered that DBus-GLib did not properly verify the access
flag of exported GObject properties under certain circumstances. A
local attacker could exploit this to bypass intended access
restrictions or possibly cause a denial of service.

Solution :

Update the affected libnm-glib0, libnm-glib2 and / or modemmanager
packages.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 1.6
(CVSS2#E:U/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
