GLSA-200903-29 : BlueZ: Arbitrary code execution
High Nessus Plugin ID 35942
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200903-29 (BlueZ: Arbitrary code execution)
It has been reported that the Bluetooth packet parser does not validate string length fields in SDP packets.
A physically proximate attacker using a Bluetooth device with an already established trust relationship could send specially crafted requests, possibly leading to arbitrary code execution or a crash.
Exploitation may also be triggered by a local attacker registering a service record via a UNIX socket or D-Bus interface.
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-wireless/bluez-utils-3.36' All bluez-libs users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-wireless/bluez-libs-3.36'
