Description Quality Assurance univentionstaff 2019-06-16 14:23:43 CEST
New Debian dbus 1.10.28-0+deb9u1 fixes:
This update addresses the following issue:
* dbus before 1.10.28, 1.12.x before 1.12.16, and 1.13.x before 1.13.12, as  used in DBusServer in Canonical Upstart in Ubuntu 14.04 (and in some, less  common, uses of dbus-daemon), allows cookie spoofing because of symlink  mishandling in the reference implementation of DBUS_COOKIE_SHA1 in the  libdbus library. (This only affects the DBUS_COOKIE_SHA1 authentication  mechanism.) A malicious client with write access to its own home directory  could manipulate a ~/.dbus-keyrings symlink to cause a DBusServer with a  different uid to read and write in unintended locations. In the worst case,  this could result in the DBusServer reusing a cookie that is known to the  malicious client, and treating that cookie as evidence that a subsequent  client connection came from an attacker-chosen uid, allowing authentication  bypass. (CVE-2019-12749)

+  * New upstream stable release
+    - CVE-2019-12749: Do not attempt to carry out DBUS_COOKIE_SHA1
+      authentication for identities that differ from the user running the
+      DBusServer. Previously, a local attacker could manipulate symbolic
+      links in their own home directory to bypass authentication and
+      connect to a DBusServer with elevated privileges. The standard
+      system and session dbus-daemons in their default configuration were
+      immune to this attack because they did not allow DBUS_COOKIE_SHA1,
+      but third-party users of DBusServer such as Upstart could be
+      vulnerable.
+    - Prevent reading up to 3 bytes beyond the end of a truncated message.
+      This could in principle be an information leak or denial of service
+      on the system bus, but is not believed to be exploitable to crash
+      the system bus or leak interesting information in practice.
+    - Stop the dbus-daemon leaking memory (an error message) if delivering
+      the message that triggered auto-activation is forbidden. This is
+      technically a denial of service because the dbus-daemon will
+      run out of memory eventually, but it's a very slow and noisy one,
+      because all the rejected messages are also very likely to have
+      been logged to the system log, and its scope is typically limited by
+      the finite number of activatable services available.
+    - Remove __attribute__((__malloc__)) attribute on dbus_realloc(),
+      which does not meet the criteria for that attribute in gcc 4.7+,
+      potentially leading to miscompilation.
+    - Fix build with gcc 8 -Werror=cast-function-type
+    - Fix warning from gcc 8 about suspicious use of strncpy() when
+      populating struct sockaddr_un
+    - Fix installation of Ducktype documentation with newer yelp-build
+      versions
+  * d/control: Update Vcs-Git, Vcs-Browser
