-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:014 _______________________________________________________________________ Package : bluez-utils Date : January 15, 2007 Affected: 2006.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: hidd in BlueZ (bluez-utils) before 2.25 allows remote attackers to obtain control of the (1) Mouse and (2) Keyboard Human Interface Device (HID) via a certain configuration of two HID (PSM) endpoints, operating as a server, aka HidAttack. hidd is not enabled by default on Mandriva 2006.0. This update adds the --nocheck option (disabled by default) to the hidd binary, which defaults to rejecting connections from unknown devices unless --nocheck is enabled. The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem _______________________________________________________________________ References: _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Linux 2006.0: 3e4cef35413fb07be1bf17be76e82ab0 2006.0/i586/bluez-utils-2.19-7.1.20060mdk.i586.rpm 71fe8899bacb7cf75482f3deced101c4 2006.0/i586/bluez-utils-cups-2.19-7.1.20060mdk.i586.rpm 4d4e9c474520e55710458666c1624c24 2006.0/SRPMS/bluez-utils-2.19-7.1.20060mdk.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2006.0/X86_64: cf217ff41df2f2abd65b86c12c15177a 2006.0/x86_64/bluez-utils-2.19-7.1.20060mdk.x86_64.rpm 26b6a142c00e22cb4fcb737f724b0bc1 2006.0/x86_64/bluez-utils-cups-2.19-7.1.20060mdk.x86_64.rpm 4d4e9c474520e55710458666c1624c24 2006.0/SRPMS/bluez-utils-2.19-7.1.20060mdk.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
