Description

Kimmo Hamalainen reported a DoS flaw in D-Bus that can cause a local user to disable the the ability of another process to receive certain messages. This flaw does not contain any potential for arbitrary code execution.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
