Title:RedHat Update for udisks RHSA-2014:0293-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'udisks'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'udisks'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The udisks package provides a daemon, a D-Bus API, and command line
utilities for managing disks and storage devices.

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way udisks handled
files with long path names. A malicious, local user could use this flaw to
create a specially crafted directory structure that, when processed by the
udisks daemon, could lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges
of the udisks daemon (root). (CVE-2014-0004)

This issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of the Red Hat Product
Security Team.

All udisks users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.

Affected Software/OS:
udisks on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
