MDKA-2006:053: dbus Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the dbus package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2006:053 (dbus).
On Mandriva Linux 2007.0, the path for D-Bus system bus socket was not
following D-Bus specification. This could cause some implementation of
the D-Bus specification to not detect the system bus correctly. This
updated package ensures the location of the system bus is exported
through DBUS_SYSTEM_BUS_ADDRESS, in compliance with D-Bus
