GLSA-201405-01 : udisks: Arbitrary code execution
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73849
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201405-01 (udisks: Arbitrary code execution)
A stack-based buffer overflow can be triggered when udisks is given a long path name as a mount point.
A local attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll udisks 1.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=sys-fs/udisks-1.0.5:0' All udisks 2.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=sys-fs/udisks-2.1.3'
