Description

dbus 1.3.0 before 1.6.22 and 1.8.x before 1.8.6 allows local users to cause a denial of service (disconnect) via a certain sequence of crafted messages that cause the dbus-daemon to forward a message containing an invalid file descriptor.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-dbus
  • ubuntu-upgrade-libdbus-1-3

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
