The bluez-libs package contains libraries for use in Bluetooth applications. The bluez-utils package contains Bluetooth daemons and utilities.

An input validation flaw was found in the Bluetooth Session Description Protocol (SDP) packet parser used by the Bluez Bluetooth utilities. A Bluetooth device with an already-established trust relationship, or a local user registering a service record via a UNIX(r) socket or D-Bus interface, could cause a crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the hcid daemon. (CVE-2008-2374)

Users of bluez-libs and bluez-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
