Description Murray McAllister 2014-09-11 07:59:12 UTC
D-Bus upstream reports:

""
By attaching the file descriptor of a D-Bus connection to a D-Bus
message and sending that message via the dbus-daemon, a malicious
process can create D-Bus connections that persist after the process that
created them has terminated. This exacerbates various patterns of
undesirable/abusive behaviour by making it impossible to terminate them
by killing processes.

This has been addressed by closing any connection that has incoming file
descriptors queued for deserialization for more than a configurable
timeout, defaulting to 2.5 minutes.
""

It is believed that versions 1.3.0 and later are affected.

Acknowledgements:

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