 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2015:176

 Package : dbus
 Date    : March 30, 2015
 Affected: Business Server 2.0

 Problem Description:

 Updated dbus packages fix multiple vulnerabilities:
 A denial of service vulnerability in D-Bus before 1.6.20 allows a
 local attacker to cause a bus-activated service that is not currently
 running to attempt to start, and fail, denying other users access to
 this service Additionally, in highly unusual environments the same
 flaw could lead to a side channel between processes that should not
 be able to communicate (CVE-2014-3477).
 A flaw was reported in D-Bus&#039;s file descriptor passing feature. A
 local attacker could use this flaw to cause a service or application
 to disconnect from the bus, typically resulting in that service or
 application exiting (CVE-2014-3532).
 A flaw was reported in D-Bus&#039;s file descriptor passing feature. A local
 attacker could use this flaw to cause an invalid file descriptor to be
 forwarded to a service or application, causing it to disconnect from
 the bus, typically resulting in that service or application exiting
 On 64-bit platforms, file descriptor passing could be abused by local
 users to cause heap corruption in dbus-daemon, leading to a crash,
 or potentially to arbitrary code execution (CVE-2014-3635).
 A denial-of-service vulnerability in dbus-daemon allowed local
 attackers to prevent new connections to dbus-daemon, or disconnect
 existing clients, by exhausting descriptor limits (CVE-2014-3636).
 Malicious local users could create D-Bus connections to dbus-daemon
 which could not be terminated by killing the participating processes,
 resulting in a denial-of-service vulnerability (CVE-2014-3637).
 dbus-daemon suffered from a denial-of-service vulnerability in the
 code which tracks which messages expect a reply, allowing local
 attackers to reduce the performance of dbus-daemon (CVE-2014-3638).
 dbus-daemon did not properly reject malicious connections from local
 users, resulting in a denial-of-service vulnerability (CVE-2014-3639).
 The patch issued by the D-Bus maintainers for CVE-2014-3636 was
 based on incorrect reasoning, and does not fully prevent the attack
 described as CVE-2014-3636 part A, which is repeated below. Preventing
 that attack requires raising the system dbus-daemon&#039;s RLIMIT_NOFILE
 (ulimit -n) to a higher value.
 By queuing up the maximum allowed number of fds, a malicious sender
 could reach the system dbus-daemon&#039;s RLIMIT_NOFILE (ulimit -n,
 typically 1024 on Linux). This would act as a denial of service in
 two ways:
  * new clients would be unable to connect to the dbus-daemon
  * when receiving a subsequent message from a non-malicious client
  that contained a fd, dbus-daemon would receive the MSG_CTRUNC flag,
  indicating that the list of fds was truncated; kernel fd-passing
  APIs do not provide any way to recover from that, so dbus-daemon
  responds to MSG_CTRUNC by disconnecting the sender, causing denial
  of service to that sender.
 This update resolves the issue (CVE-2014-7824).
 non-systemd processes can make dbus-daemon think systemd failed to
 activate a system service, resulting in an error reply back to the
 requester, causing a local denial of service (CVE-2015-0245).
