Updated dbus packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 18 Jun 2013
Affected Mageia releases : 2 , 3
Alexandru Cornea discovered a vulnerability in libdbus caused by an implementation bug in _dbus_printf_string_upper_bound(). This vulnerability can be exploited by a local user to crash system services that use libdbus, causing denial of service. Depending on the dbus services running, it could lead to complete system crash (CVE-2013-2168). This problem only currently appears to affect the x86_64 version of Mageia but we advise that all systems should be updated.
