    Package        : dbus
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-12749
    Debian Bug     : 930375
    
    Joe Vennix discovered an authentication bypass vulnerability in dbus, an
    asynchronous inter-process communication system. The implementation of
    the DBUS_COOKIE_SHA1 authentication mechanism was susceptible to a
    symbolic link attack. A local attacker could take advantage of this flaw
    to bypass authentication and connect to a DBusServer with elevated
    privileges.
    
    The standard system and session dbus-daemons in their default
    configuration are not affected by this vulnerability.
    
    The vulnerability was addressed by upgrading dbus to a new upstream
    version 1.10.28 which includes additional fixes.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.10.28-0+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dbus packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of dbus please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
