SuSE 10 Security Update : hal (ZYPP Patch Number 6036)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 41520
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionThe dbus package used a too permissive configuration. Therefore intended access control for some services was not applied.
The new configuration denies access by default. Some dbus services may break due to this setting and need an updated configuration as well.
Additionally a bug in hal that allowed users to crash the hal daemon has been fixed.
SolutionApply ZYPP patch number 6036.
