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