Title: D-Bus: Denial of Service (GLSA 201503-02)
Date: March 07, 2015
A vulnerability has been found in D-Bus, possibly resulting in
local Denial of Service.
D-Bus is a message bus system, a simple way for applications to talk to
Vulnerable: < 1.8.16
Unaffected: >= 1.8.16
Architectures: All supported architectures
D-Bus doesn’t validate the source of ActivationFailure signals.
A local attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All D-Bus users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/dbus-1.8.16"
