Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : dbus (MDKSA-2005:105)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 18562


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Dan Reed discovered a vulnerability in the D-BUS system for sending messages between applications. He found that a user can send and listen to messages on another user's per-user session bus if they knew the address of the socket.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.


Update the affected packages.
