Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:0008
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:0008.

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

A denial-of-service flaw was discovered in the system for sending messages
between applications. A local user could send a message with a malformed
signature to the bus causing the bus (and, consequently, any process using
libdbus to receive messages) to abort. (CVE-2008-3834)

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated dbus packages, which
contain backported patch which resolve this issue. For the update to take
effect, all running instances of dbus-daemon and all running applications
using libdbus library must be restarted, or the system rebooted.

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
