Doc Text:
An uncontrolled resource consumption vulnerability was discovered in D-Bus. The DBusServer leaks file descriptors when a message exceeds the per-message file descriptor limit. This flaw allows a local attacker with access to the D-Bus system bus or another system service's private AF_UNIX socket, to make the system service reach its file descriptor limit, denying service to subsequent D-Bus clients. As a result, the system may become unusable for other users, and some services may stop working. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.

Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2020-06-19 14:03:40 UTC
An issue was discovered in dbus >= 1.3.0 before 1.12.18. The DBusServer in libdbus, as used in dbus-daemon, leaks file descriptors when a message exceeds the per-message file descriptor limit. A local attacker with access to the D-Bus system bus or another system service's private AF_UNIX socket could use this to make the system service reach its file descriptor limit, denying service to subsequent D-Bus clients.

Comment 1 Dhananjay Arunesh 2020-06-19 14:04:05 UTC
Created dbus tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1849042]

Comment 5 Riccardo Schirone 2020-06-29 15:09:13 UTC
Function _dbus_read_socket_with_unix_fds() does not close the opened file descriptors when the control data of the message was truncated. This leaks some file descriptors. If multiple file descriptor are leaked, the dbus process can reach its RLIMIT_NOFILE limit enforced by the system, thus when later some service tries to use the bus, DBus is not able to operate properly because it cannot allocate more file descriptors. As DBus is nowadays used by multiple services, the system becomes almost unusable.

Comment 7 Riccardo Schirone 2020-06-29 15:28:39 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of dbus as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and 6 as they did not include the vulnerable code.
