Description


Updated udisks packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
Important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

The udisks package provides a daemon, a D-Bus API, and command line
utilities for managing disks and storage devices.

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way udisks handled
files with long path names. A malicious, local user could use this flaw to
create a specially crafted directory structure that, when processed by the
udisks daemon, could lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges
of the udisks daemon (root). (CVE-2014-0004)

This issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of the Red Hat Product
Security Team.

All udisks users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
