Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> CC: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com, Simon McVittie <smcv@...ian.org>, 629938@...s.debian.org Subject: CVE Request -- dbus -- Local DoS via messages with non-native byte order Hello, Josh, Steve, vendors, It was found that D-BUS message bus service / messaging facility did not update the byte-order flag of the message properly by swapping the byte order of incoming messages into their native endiannes. A local, authenticated user could use this flaw to send a specially-crafted message to a system service (like Avahi or NetworkManager), using the system bus, potentially leading to disconnect of such a service from system bus (denial of service).
