Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0376
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0376.

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 an excessive
number of nested variants to the system-wide message bus, causing the
message bus (and, consequently, any process using libdbus to receive
messages) to abort. (CVE-2010-4352)

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue. For the update to take effect, all
running instances of dbus-daemon and all running applications using the
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

Risk factor : Medium
