Ubuntu 5.10 : bluez-utils vulnerability (USN-413-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 28002
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionA flaw was discovered in the HID daemon of bluez-utils. A remote attacker could gain control of the mouse and keyboard if hidd was enabled. This does not affect a default Ubuntu installation, since hidd is normally disabled.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected bluez-cups, bluez-pcmcia-support and / or bluez-utils packages.
