CVE-2014-3635

Priority
Medium
Description
Off-by-one error in D-Bus 1.3.0 through 1.6.x before 1.6.24 and 1.8.x
before 1.8.8, when running on a 64-bit system and the max_message_unix_fds
limit is set to an odd number, allows local users to cause a denial of
service (dbus-daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by sending
one more file descriptor than the limit, which triggers a heap-based buffer
overflow or an assertion failure.
