Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2010-12863
2010-08-17 05:06:40
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : dbus-glib
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 0.86
Release     : 4.fc13
URL         : http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/
Summary     : GLib bindings for D-Bus
Description :

D-Bus add-on library to integrate the standard D-Bus library with
the GLib thread abstraction and main loop.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

It was discovered that dbus-glib did not enforce the "access" flag on exported
GObject properties. If such a property were read/write internally but specified
as read-only externally, a malicious, local user could use this flaw to modify
that property of an application. Such a change could impact the application's
behavior (for example, if an IP address were changed the network may not come up
properly after reboot) and possibly lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1172)
Due to the way dbus-glib translates an application's XML definitions of service
interfaces and properties into C code at application build time, applications
built against dbus-glib that use read-only properties needed to be rebuilt to
fully fix the flaw. This update provides DeviceKit-power packages that have been
rebuilt against the updated dbus-glib packages.
