Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59086
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-401-1 (dbus)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-401-1 (dbus)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to dbus
announced via advisory USN-401-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Kimmo Hmlinen discovered that local users could delete other users'
D-Bus match rules. Applications would stop receiving D-Bus messages,
resulting in a local denial of service, and potential data loss for
applications that depended on D-Bus for storing information.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.10:
dbus 0.36.2-0ubuntu7.1

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
dbus 0.60-6ubuntu8.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
dbus 0.93-0ubuntu3.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to reboot your computer to
effect the necessary changes.
