“dbus” 1.2.4-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

dbus (1.2.4-0ubuntu1) intrepid; urgency=low

  * New upstream bug fix release: (LP: #279425)
    - Fix crash on dbus_signature_validate("a{(ii)i}", NULL), which would
      unexpectedly abort the calling program. [CVE-2008-3834]
    - Close file descriptors before exec()ing helpers, to avoid locking
      hardware like video cards by eternally open file fds. (LP: #230877)
    - A small number of compilation and portability fixes.

dbus: simple interprocess messaging system

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 D-Bus supports broadcast messages, asynchronous messages (thus
 decreasing latency), authentication, and more. It is designed to be
 low-overhead; messages are sent using a binary protocol, not using
 XML. D-Bus also supports a method call mapping for its messages, but
 it is not required; this makes using the system quite simple.
 .
 It comes with several bindings, including GLib, Python, Qt and Java.
 .
 This package contains the D-Bus daemon and related utilities.
 .
 The client-side library can be found in the libdbus-1-3 package, as it is no
 longer contained in this package.
