D-Bus contains some tools that require Xlib to be installed, those are in this separate package so server systems need not install X.

    2014-11-25 - fstrba@suse.com - Update to 1.8.12: * Fixes: - Partially revert the CVE-2014-3639 patch by increasing the default authentication timeout on the system bus from 5 seconds back to 30 seconds, since this has been reported to cause boot regressions for some users, mostly with parallel boot (systemd) on slower hardware. On fast systems where local users are considered particularly hostile, administrators can return to the 5 second timeout (or any other value in milliseconds) by saving this as /etc/dbus-1/system-local.conf: <busconfig> <limit name="auth_timeout">5000</limit> </busconfig> (fdo#86431, Simon McVittie) - Add a message in syslog/the Journal when the auth_timeout is exceeded (fdo#86431, Simon McVittie) - Send back an AccessDenied error if the addressed recipient is not allowed to receive a message (and in builds with assertions enabled, don't assert under the same conditions). (fdo#86194, Jacek Bukarewicz)

    2014-11-10 - fstrba@suse.com - Update to 1.8.10: * Security fixes: - Increase dbus-daemon's RLIMIT_NOFILE rlimit to 65536 so that CVE-2014-3636 part A cannot exhaust the system bus' file descriptors, completing the incomplete fix in 1.8.8. (CVE-2014-7824, fd.o #85105; Simon McVittie, Alban Crequy)

    2014-09-30 - fstrba@suse.com - Reformat the spec file using spec-cleaner

    2014-09-18 - fstrba@suse.com - Update baselibs.conf: Provides dbus-1-32bit in lib package

    2014-09-16 - fstrba@suse.com - Update to 1.8.8: + Security fixes: - Do not accept an extra fd in the padding of a cmsg message, which could lead to a 4-byte heap buffer overrun. (CVE-2014-3635, fdo#83622, bnc#896453; Simon McVittie) - Reduce default for maximum Unix file descriptors passed per message from 1024 to 16, preventing a uid with the default maximum number of connections from exhausting the system bus' file descriptors under Linux's default rlimit. Distributors or system administrators with a more restrictive fd limit may wish to reduce these limits further. Additionally, on Linux this prevents a second denial of service in which the dbus-daemon can be made to exceed the maximum number of fds per sendmsg() and disconnect the process that would have received them. (CVE-2014-3636, fdo#82820, bnc#896453; Alban Crequy) - Disconnect connections that still have a fd pending unmarshalling after a new configurable limit, pending_fd_timeout (defaulting to 150 seconds), removing the possibility of creating an abusive connection that cannot be disconnected by setting up a circular reference to a connection's file descriptor. (CVE-2014-3637, fdo#80559, bnc#896453; Alban Crequy) - Reduce default for maximum pending replies per connection from 8192 to 128, mitigating an algorithmic complexity denial-of-service attack (CVE-2014-3638, fdo#81053, bnc#896453; Alban Crequy) - Reduce default for authentication timeout on the system bus from 30 seconds to 5 seconds, avoiding denial of service by using up all unauthenticated connection slots; and when all unauthenticated connection slots are used up, make new connection attempts block instead of disconnecting them. (CVE-2014-3639, fdo#80919, bnc#896453; Alban Crequy) + Other fixes: - Check for libsystemd from systemd >= 209, falling back to the older separate libraries if not found (Umut Tezduyar Lindskog, Simon McVittie) - On Linux, use prctl() to disable core dumps from a test executable that deliberately raises SIGSEGV to test dbus-daemon's handling of that condition (fdo#83772, Simon McVittie) - Fix compilation with --enable-stats (fdo#81043, Gentoo #507232; Alban Crequy) - Improve documentation for running tests on Windows (fdo#41252, Ralf Habacker)
