Ubuntu 4.10 / 5.04 / 5.10 : bluez-hcidump vulnerability (USN-256-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Pierre Betouin discovered a Denial of Service vulnerability in the
handling of the L2CAP (Logical Link Control and Adaptation Layer
Protocol) layer. By sending a specially crafted L2CAP packet through a
wireless Bluetooth connection, a remote attacker could crash hcidump.

Since hcidump is mainly a debugging tool, the impact of this flaw is
very low.

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-hcidump package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0

Family: Ubuntu Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 21064 ()
