Security vulnerabilities have been identified and fixed in udev.
udev before 1.4.1 does not verify whether a NETLINK message originates
from kernel space, which allows local users to gain privileges by
sending a NETLINK message from user space (CVE-2009-1185).
Buffer overflow in the util_path_encode function in
udev/lib/libudev-util.c in udev before 1.4.1 allows local users to

call with crafted arguments (CVE-2009-1186).
The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
