Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) 2009-04-16 22:41:39 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #240308 +++ A call to dbus_signature_validate() can crash dbus. The applied patch via bug 240308 is invalid. Further Reference: http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2009/04/16/13
Comment 1 Alex Legler (RETIRED) 2009-04-16 22:47:48 UTC
The current additional patch to be applied on top of the old one can be found here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=24436 However, upstream are not yet completely sure if they got it right this time. So maybe we should give them some more time to ascertain the validity before applying.

CVE-2009-1189 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-1189): The _dbus_validate_signature_with_reason function (dbus-marshal-validate.c) in D-Bus (aka DBus) uses incorrect logic to validate a basic type, which allows remote attackers to spoof a signature via a crafted key. NOTE: this is due to an incorrect fix for CVE-2008-3834.

gentopia is no more, updating CC list.
Comment 4 Gilles Dartiguelongue 2010-09-13 21:46:02 UTC
1.2.3 has been removed from the tree.
Comment 5 Chris Reffett (RETIRED) 2013-08-22 15:31:52 UTC
Obsolete, long gone from tree and not important enough for a GLSA at this point. Closing.
