openSUSE Security Update : dbus-1 (openSUSE-SU-2015:0111-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes the following security issues :

- CVE-2014-8148 :

- Do not allow calls to UpdateActivationEnvironment from
uids other than the uid of the dbus-daemon. If a system
service installs unsafe security policy rules that allow
arbitrary method calls (such as CVE-2014-8148) then this
prevents memory consumption and possible privilege
escalation via UpdateActivationEnvironment.

- CVE-2012-3524: Don't access environment variables
(bnc#912016)
