Insight

Insight

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.
