Build-time configuration:

 The new --enable-debug configure option provides an easy way to
  enable debug symbols, disable optimization and/or enable profiling.

 The --enable-compile-warnings configure option can be used to control
  compiler warnings.

 The --disable-compiler-optimisations configure option is no longer
  supported. Use --enable-debug=yes or CFLAGS=-O0 instead.

Enhancements:

 Fix and enable a lot of compiler warnings to improve future code
  quality. This might incidentally also fix some environment variable
  accesses on OS X.

The darkly whimsical release.

Security fixes:

 Do not treat ActivationFailure message received from root-owned systemd
  name as a format string. In principle this is a security vulnerability,
  but we do not believe it is exploitable in practice, because only
  privileged processes can own the org.freedesktop.systemd1 bus name, and
  systemd does not appear to send activation failures that contain "%".

  Please note that this probably *was* exploitable in dbus versions
  older than 1.6.30, 1.8.16 and 1.9.10 due to a missing check which at
  the time was only thought to be a denial of service vulnerability
  (CVE-2015-0245). If you are still running one of those versions,
  patch or upgrade immediately.

Summary of major changes since 1.8.0:

 The basic setup for the well-known system and session buses is
  now done in read-only files in ${datadir} (normally /usr/share).
  See the NEWS entry for 1.9.18 for details.

 AppArmor integration has been merged, with features similar to the
  pre-existing SELinux integration. It is mostly compatible with the
  patches previously shipped by Ubuntu, with one significant change:
  Ubuntu's GetConnectionAppArmorSecurityContext method has been superseded
  by GetConnectionCredentials and was not included.

• The --enable-user-session configure option can be enabled
  by OS integrators intending to use systemd to provide a session bus
  per user (in effect, treating all concurrent graphical and non-graphical
  login sessions as one large session).

• The new listenable address mode "unix:runtime=yes" listens on
  $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/bus, the same AF_UNIX socket used by the systemd
  user session. libdbus and "dbus-launch --autolaunch" will connect to
  this address by default. GLib ≥ 2.45.3 and sd-bus ≥ 209 have a
  matching default.

• All executables are now dynamically linked to libdbus-1.
  Previously, some executables, most notably dbus-daemon, were statically
  linked to a specially-compiled variant of libdbus. This results in
  various private functions in the _dbus namespace being exposed by the
  shared library. These are not API, and must not be used outside

• The basic setup for the well-known system and session buses is now done
  in read-only files in ${datadir}, moving a step closer to systems
  that can operate with an empty /etc directory. In increasing order
  of precedence:

  · ${datadir}/dbus-1/s*.conf now perform the basic setup such as setting
    the default message policies.
  · ${sysconfdir}/dbus-1/s*.conf are now optional. By default
    dbus still installs a trivial version of each, for documentation
    purposes; putting configuration directives in these files is deprecated.
  · ${datadir}/dbus-1/s*.d/ are now available for third-party software
    to install "drop-in" configuration snippets (any packages
    using those directories should explicitly depend on at least this
    version of dbus).
  · ${sysconfdir}/dbus-1/s*.d/ are also still available for sysadmins
    or third-party software to install "drop-in" configuration snippets
  · ${sysconfdir}/dbus-1/s*-local.conf are still available for sysadmins'
    overrides

  ${datadir} is normally /usr/share, ${sysconfdir} is normally /etc,
  and "s*" refers to either system or session as appropriate.

• Do not allow non-uid-0 processes to send forged ActivationFailure
  messages. On Linux systems with systemd activation, this would
  allow a local denial of service: unprivileged processes could

  to be sent back when service auto-activation was requested.

Enhancements:

• The new Monitoring interface in the dbus-daemon lets dbus-monitor and
  similar tools receive messages without altering the security properties
  of the system bus, by calling the new BecomeMonitor method on a
  private connection. This bypasses the normal <allow> and <deny> rules
  entirely, so to preserve normal message-privacy assumptions, only root
  is allowed to do this on the system bus. Restricted environments,
  such as Linux with LSMs, should lock down access to the Monitoring
  interface. (fd.o #46787, Simon McVittie)

• dbus-monitor uses BecomeMonitor to capture more traffic, if the
  dbus-daemon supports it and access permissions allow it.
  It still supports the previous approach ("eavesdropping" match rules)
  for compatibility with older bus daemons. (fd.o #46787, Simon)

• dbus-monitor can now log the message stream as binary data for later
  analysis, with either no extra framing beyond the normal D-Bus headers,
  or libpcap-compatible framing treating each D-Bus message
  as a captured packet. (fd.o #46787, Simon)

Security hardening:

• Do not allow calls to UpdateActivationEnvironment from uids other than
  the uid of the dbus-daemon. If a system service installs unsafe
  security policy rules that allow arbitrary method calls
  (such as CVE-2014-8148) then this prevents memory consumption and
  possible privilege escalation via UpdateActivationEnvironment.

  We believe that in practice, privilege escalation here is avoided
  by dbus-daemon-launch-helper sanitizing its environment; but
  it seems better to be safe.

• Do not allow calls to UpdateActivationEnvironment or the Stats interface
  on object paths other than /org/freedesktop/DBus. Some system services
  install unsafe security policy rules that allow arbitrary method calls
  to any destination, method and interface with a specified object path;
  while less bad than allowing arbitrary method calls, these security
  policies are still harmful, since dbus-daemon normally offers the
  same API on all object paths and other system services might behave
  similarly.

 Partially revert the CVE-2014-3639 patch by increasing the default
  authentication timeout on the system bus from 5 seconds back to 30
  seconds, since this has been reported to cause boot regressions for
  some users, mostly with parallel boot (systemd) on slower hardware.

  On fast systems where local users are considered particularly hostile,
  administrators can return to the 5 second timeout (or any other value

The "smashy smashy egg man" release.

Security fixes:

• Do not accept an extra fd in the padding of a cmsg message, which
  could lead to a 4-byte heap buffer overrun.
  (CVE-2014-3635, fd.o #83622; Simon McVittie)

• Reduce default for maximum Unix file descriptors passed per message
  from 1024 to 16, preventing a uid with the default maximum number of
  connections from exhausting the system bus' file descriptors under
  Linux's default rlimit. Distributors or system administrators with a
  more restrictive fd limit may wish to reduce these limits further.

  Additionally, on Linux this prevents a second denial of service
  in which the dbus-daemon can be made to exceed the maximum number
  of fds per sendmsg() and disconnect the process that would have
  received them.
  (CVE-2014-3636, fd.o #82820; Alban Crequy)

• Disconnect connections that still have a fd pending unmarshalling after
  a new configurable limit, pending_fd_timeout (defaulting to 150 seconds),
  removing the possibility of creating an abusive connection that cannot be
  disconnected by setting up a circular reference to a connection's
  file descriptor.
  (CVE-2014-3637, fd.o #80559; Alban Crequy)

 Reduce default for maximum pending replies per connection from 8192 to 128,
  mitigating an algorithmic complexity denial-of-service attack
  (CVE-2014-3638, fd.o #81053; Alban Crequy)

 Reduce default for authentication timeout on the system bus from
  30 seconds to 5 seconds, avoiding denial of service by using up
  all unauthenticated connection slots; and when all unauthenticated
  connection slots are used up, make new connection attempts block
  instead of disconnecting them.

Security fixes:

• On Linux ≥ 2.6.37-rc4, if sendmsg() fails with ETOOMANYREFS, silently drop

  denial of service.
  (fd.o #80163, CVE-2014-3532; Alban Crequy)

• Track remaining Unix file descriptors correctly when more than one
  message in quick succession contains fds. This prevents another attack
  in which a malicious client can make dbus-daemon disconnect a system
  service.

The Wolverine distrusts my printer release.

This starts a new stable branch. The 1.6.x branch is now considered to be
outdated, and will only receive fixes for serious bugs such as security
flaws. The 1.4.x and 1.2.x branches no longer have upstream support and
are unlikely to get any more releases, but if distributors still need to
support them, please share security patches via upstream.

Summary of changes since 1.6.x:

 libdbus always behaves as if dbus_threads_init_default() had been called
  (thread-safety by default)
 new dbus-run-session tool, replacing certain misuses of dbus-launch
 dbus-monitor can talk to outdated versions of dbus-daemon again
 new org.freedesktop.DBus.GetConnectionCredentials method
 GetConnectionUnixProcessID also works correctly on Windows, returning
  the Windows process ID
 GetConnectionWindowsSID returns the correct SID on Windows
 expat is required, libxml2 can no longer be used as a substitute
 the userDB cache is required, and cannot be disabled
 a 64-bit integer type (either int, long, long long or _int64) is required
 better systemd-journald integration on Linux
 fixed long-standing fd and array leaks when failing to parse a message
 fixed referenced-but-never-freed parent nodes (effectively memory leaks)
  when using certain object-path allocation patterns, notably in Avahi
 better defaults for Windows support
 better CMake support
 better portability to mingw32, FreeBSD, NetBSD, QNX and Hurd
 the source language for the man pages is now Docbook XML

 If the tests crash with an assertion failure, they no longer default to

 To improve debuggability, the dbus-daemon and dbus-daemon-eavesdrop tests
  can be run with an external dbus-daemon by setting
  DBUS_TEST_DAEMON_ADDRESS in the environment. Test-cases that require
  an unusually-configured dbus-daemon are skipped.

The “extreme hills” release.

Dependencies:

• If systemd support is enabled, libsystemd-journal is now required.

Enhancements:

• When activating a non-systemd service under systemd, annotate its
  stdout/stderr with its bus name in the Journal. Known limitation:
  because the socket is opened before forking, the process will still be
  logged as if it had dbus-daemon's process ID and user ID.
