A flaw was found in the way dbus-glib filtered the message sender
(message source subject) when the 'NameOwnerChanged' signal was
received. This could trick a system service using dbus-glib (such as
fprintd) into believing a signal was sent from a privileged process,
when it was not. A local attacker could use this flaw to escalate
their privileges. (CVE-2013-0292)
All running applications linked against dbus-glib, such as fprintd and
NetworkManager, must be restarted for this update to take effect.
