bluez-hcidump Denial of Service


"ubuntu: Pierre Betouin discovered a Denial of Service
vulnerability in the handling of the L2CAP (Logical Link
Control and Adaptation Layer Protocol) layer. By sending a
specially crafted L2CAP packet through a wireless Bluetooth
connection, a remote attacker could crash hcidump.  Since
hcidump is mainly a debugging tool, the impact of this flaw is
very low."

The patch is here:

moving to security response bug.  should we decide to fix this in a later update
for rhel4 we'll create appropriate tracking bugs with flags at that time.

This issue is corrected in bluez-hcidump 1.32 as provided by Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.  The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this issue as having low security impact, a future update may address this flaw in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
