Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009:256-1: dbus

A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in dbus:

The _dbus_validate_signature_with_reason function
(dbus-marshal-validate.c) in D-Bus (aka DBus) uses incorrect logic
to validate a basic type, which allows remote attackers to spoof a
signature via a crafted key. NOTE: this is due to an incorrect fix
for CVE-2008-3834 (CVE-2009-1189).

This update provides a fix for this vulnerability.

Update:

Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
Corporate products.
