Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: udisks: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201405-01)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local
Date: May 02, 2014
Bug(s): #504100
ID: 201405-01

Synopsis

A stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability has been found in
udisks, allowing a local attacker to possibly execute arbitrary code or
cause Denial of Service.


Background

udisks is an abstraction for enumerating block devices and performing
operations on them.


Affected Packages

Package: sys-fs/udisks
Vulnerable: < 2.1.3
Unaffected: >= 1.0.5 < 1.0.6
Unaffected: >= 2.1.3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

A stack-based buffer overflow can be triggered when udisks is given a
long path name as a mount point.


Impact

A local attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All udisks 1.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-fs/udisks-1.0.5:0"
   
All udisks 2.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-fs/udisks-2.1.3"
