CVE-2018-10910

Priority
Description
A bug in Bluez may allow for the Bluetooth Discoverable state being set to
on when no Bluetooth agent is registered with the system. This situation
could lead to the unauthorized pairing of certain Bluetooth devices without
any form of authentication. Versions before bluez 5.51 are vulnerable.
Notes
mdeslauractual bug in bluez, but there is a work-around in gnome-bluetooth
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-bluetooth/commit/6b5086d42ea64d46277f3c93b43984f331d12f89
gnome-bluetooth <=3.26 used synchronous d-bus calls, so the
issue doesn't present itself
the bluez patches add new functionnality that newer versions of
gnome-bluetooth can use to fix this issue. Since the
workaround was applied to gnome-bluetooth, we aren't going to
add these commits to bluez. Marking as ignored.
