CVEs (cve.mitre.org): CVE-2006-6107

Details

Updated dbus packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

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

Kimmo Hamalainen discovered a flaw in the way D-BUS processes certain
messages. It is possible for a local unprivileged D-BUS process to disrupt
the ability of another D-BUS process to receive messages. (CVE-2006-6107)

Users of dbus are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct this issue.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
