Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : dbus (MDVSA-2008:054)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 36700
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability was discovered by Havoc Pennington in how the dbus-daemon applied its security policy. A user with the ability to connect to the dbus-daemon could possibly execute certain method calls that they should not normally have access to.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
Users will have to reboot the system once these packages have been installed in order to prevent problems due to service dependencies on the messagebus service.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
