- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : dbus
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-3834
Debian Bug : 501443

Colin Walters discovered that the dbus_signature_validate function in
dbus, a simple interprocess messaging system, is prone to a denial of
service attack.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.2-1+etch2.

For the testing distribution (lenny) and unstable distribution (sid)
this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your dbus package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
