openSUSE Security Update : bluez-audio (bluez-audio-100)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

Missing length checks in bluez-libs could cause a buffer overflow in
Bluetooth applications. Malicious bluetooth devices could potentially
exploit that to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2008-2374).

Note: The source code of each application that uses vulnerable
functions of bluez-libs needs to be adapted to actually fix the
problem.
