Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2013-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Sebastian Krahmer and Bastien Nocera discovered that DBus-GLib did not
properly validate the message sender when the 'NameOwnerChanged'
signal was received. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to
escalate their privileges.
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.
Update the affected libdbus-glib-1-2 package.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.2
