Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-11-25 11:46:44 EST
Multiple SQL injection flaws were found in the way colord, a color daemon that maps color devices to color profiles in the system context, performed SQL queries sanitization in database routines processing color device mappings and devices. If a local user was allowed to create new devices, and colord daemon was run as root, a local attacker could use this flaw to corrupt colord's own database or potentially other system SQLite3 based and related databases (for example that, used by polkit daemon).
