Ubuntu 8.04 LTS / 10.04 LTS : dbus-glib vulnerability (USN-1138-1)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 55099
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt was discovered that DBus-GLib did not properly verify the access flag of exported GObject properties under certain circumstances. A local attacker could exploit this to bypass intended access restrictions or possibly cause a denial of service.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected libdbus-glib-1-2 package.
