The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
hidd in BlueZ (bluez-utils) before 2.25 allows remote attackers to
obtain control of the (1) Mouse and (2) Keyboard Human Interface
Device (HID) via a certain configuration of two HID (PSM) endpoints,
operating as a server, aka HidAttack.
hidd is not enabled by default on Mandriva 2006.0. This update adds
the --nocheck option (disabled by default) to the hidd binary, which
defaults to rejecting connections from unknown devices unless
--nocheck is enabled.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem
Update the affected bluez-utils and / or bluez-utils-cups packages.
