==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.04
- Ubuntu 18.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

DBus could allow unintended access to services.

Software Description:
- dbus: simple interprocess messaging system

Details:

Joe Vennix discovered that DBus incorrectly handled DBUS_COOKIE_SHA1
authentication. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass
authentication and connect to DBus servers with elevated privileges.

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
dbus 1.10.6-1ubuntu3.4
