Synopsis
========

A vulnerability has been found in D-Bus which allows a local user to
cause a Denial of Service.

Background
==========

D-Bus is a message bus system which processes can use to talk to each
other.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 sys-apps/dbus < 1.6.12 >= 1.6.12

Description
===========

D-Bus' _dbus_printf_string_upper_bound() function crashes if it returns
exactly 1024 bytes.

Impact
======

A local attacker could provide specially-crafted input to an
application using D-Bus which would cause
_dbus_printf_string_upper_bound() to return 1024 bytes and crash,
causing a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All D-Bus users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/dbus-1.6.12"
