Package : gvfs Version : 1.22.2-1+deb8u1 CVE ID : CVE-2019-12795 Debian Bug : 930376

Simon McVittie discovered a flaw in gvfs, the Gnome Virtual File System. The gvfsd daemon opened a private D-Bus server socket without configuring an authorization rule. A local attacker could connect to this server socket and issue D-Bus method calls.

(Note that the server socket only accepts a single connection, so the attacker would have to discover the server and connect to the socket before its owner does.)

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version 1.22.2-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gvfs packages.
