RHSA-2008:0581 -- bluez-libs and bluez-utils security update (Moderate)
Updated bluez-libs and bluez-utils packages that fix a security flaw are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The bluez-libs package contains libraries for use in Bluetooth applications. The bluez-utils package contains Bluetooth daemons and utilities. An input validation flaw was found in the Bluetooth Session Description Protocol (SDP) packet parser used by the Bluez Bluetooth utilities. A Bluetooth device with an already-established trust relationship or a local user registering a service record via a UNIX reg; socket or D-Bus interface could cause a crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the hcid daemon. (CVE-2008-2374) Users of bluez-libs and bluez-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
