openSUSE 10 Security Update : dbus-1 (dbus-1-5972)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 35955


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The dbus package used a too permissive configuration. Therefore intended access control for some services was not applied (CVE-2008-4311).

The new configuration denies access by default. Some dbus services may break due to this setting and need an updated configuration as well.


Update the affected dbus-1 packages.
