Scientific Linux Security Update : dbus on SL5.x i386/x86_64
Low Nessus Plugin ID 60510
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA denial-of-service flaw was discovered in the system for sending messages between applications. A local user could send a message with a malformed signature to the bus causing the bus (and, consequently, any process using libdbus to receive messages) to abort.
SolutionUpdate the affected dbus, dbus-devel and / or dbus-x11 packages.
