Description Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-06-12 13:12:21 UTC
All versions prior to 1.4.12 are vulnerable to local denial of service vulnerability, no CVE assigned yet:
Comment 1 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-06-12 13:13:24 UTC
From NEWS:

D-Bus 1.4.12 (2011-06-10)

Security (local denial of service):

• Byte-swap foreign-endian messages correctly, preventing a long-standing
  local DoS if foreign-endian messages are relayed through the dbus-daemon
  (backporters: this is git commit c3223ba6c401ba81df1305851312a47c485e6cd7)
  (fd.o #38120, Debian #629938, no CVE number yet; Simon McVittie)

amd64 ok
Comment 3 Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-06-12 18:24:47 UTC
Thanks, Samuli. Just for the record ;)

Arches, please test and mark stable:
Target keywords : "alpha amd64 arm hppa ia64 ppc ppc64 s390 sh sparc x86"
Comment 4 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2011-06-13 09:50:53 UTC

I think that for security bug(s) we can skip a test failure, so it shouldn't be as a blocker.
Comment 5 Ian Delaney (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-06-13 22:44:10 UTC

Does fail test, already filed.  Unset test and emerge ok.
Comment 6 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-06-14 16:05:33 UTC
Stable for HPPA.

Comment 9 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2011-06-24 00:06:34 UTC
CVE-2011-2200 (
  The _dbus_header_byteswap function in dbus-marshal-header.c in D-Bus (aka
  DBus) 1.2.x before 1.2.28, 1.4.x before 1.4.12, and 1.5.x before 1.5.4 does
  not properly handle a non-native byte order, which allows local users to
  cause a denial of service (connection loss), obtain potentially sensitive
  information, or conduct unspecified state-modification attacks via crafted
