Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-03-10 16:04:14 UTC
From ${URL} :

Florian Weimer of the Red Hat Product Security Team, found a flaw in
the way udisks and udisks2 handled long path names. A malicious, local
user could use this flaw to create a specially-crafted directory
structure that could lead to arbitrary code execution with the
privileges of the udisks daemon (root).

This issue has been assigned CVE-2014-0004.
