Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

The dbus package used a too permissive configuration. Therefore
intended access control for some services was not applied.
(CVE-2008-4311)

The new configuration denies access by default. Some dbus services may
break due to this setting and need an updated configuration as well.

Additionally a bug in hal that allowed users to crash the hal daemon
has been fixed.
