Title: D-Bus: Denial of service (GLSA 202007-46)
A local Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in D-Bus.
D-Bus is a message bus system which processes can use to talk to each
Vulnerable: < 1.12.18
Unaffected: >= 1.12.18
Architectures: All supported architectures
D-Bus does not correctly dispose of old connections meaning that it is
possible for D-Bus to hit a connection limit.
An attacker could cause a possible Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All D-Bus users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/dbus-1.12.18"
