udisks and udisks2 provide a daemon, D-Bus API, and command line tools for managing disks and storage devices. A flaw was found in the way udisks and udisks2 handled long path names. A malicious, local user could use this flaw to create a specially-crafted directory structure that could lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the udisks daemon (root).
This issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of the Red Hat Product Security Team.
