Description Murray McAllister 2014-06-30 03:26:41 UTC
A flaw was reported in D-Bus's file descriptor passing feature. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a service or application to disconnect from the bus, typically resulting in that service or application exiting.

It is reported that versions 1.3.0 and newer are affected.


Red Hat would like to thank D-Bus upstream for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Alban Crequy of Collabora Ltd. as the original reporter.
