Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60713
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0159
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0159.

D-Bus is a system for sending messages between applications. It is used
both for the system-wide message bus service, and as a
per-user-login-session messaging facility.

Havoc Pennington discovered a flaw in the way the dbus-daemon applies its
security policy. A user with the ability to connect to the dbus-daemon may
be able to execute certain method calls they should normally not have
permission to access. (CVE-2008-0595)

Red Hat does not ship any applications in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 that
would allow a user to leverage this flaw to elevate their privileges.

This flaw does not affect the version of D-Bus shipped in Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4.

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated dbus packages, which
contain a backported patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
