Gmane
From: Pat Riehecky <riehecky-13hema8v3vg <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: Security ERRATA Important: dbus-glib on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Thursday 28th February 2013 22:21:06 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Important: dbus-glib security update
Issue Date:        2013-02-26
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2013-0292
--

A flaw was found in the way dbus-glib filtered the message sender (message
source subject) when the "NameOwnerChanged" signal was received. This could
trick a system service using dbus-glib (such as fprintd) into believing a
signal was sent from a privileged process, when it was not. A local
attacker
could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-0292)

All running applications linked against dbus-glib, such as fprintd and
NetworkManager, must be restarted for this update to take effect.
