openSUSE 10 Security Update : bluez-audio (bluez-audio-5441)

High Nessus Plugin ID 34289


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Missing length checks in bluez-libs could cause a buffer overflow in Bluetooth applications. Malicious bluetooth devices could potentially exploit that to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2008-2374).

Note: The source code of each application that uses vulnerable functions of bluez-libs needs to be adapted to actually fix the problem.


Update the affected bluez-audio packages.
