    ############################################
    The dbus 1.6 branch has reached end-of-life.
    ############################################

There will probably be no more releases from this branch. However, OS
distributions that still provide security support for a version based on
it are invited to share backported fixes using the dbus-1.6 git branch:
please contact the dbus maintainers for more information.

Security fix backported from 1.8.16:

• 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
  flood the bus with these forged messages, winning the race with
  the actual service activation and causing an error reply
  to be sent back when service auto-activation was requested.
  This does not prevent the real service from being started,
  so the attack only works while the real service is not running.

Regression fix backported from 1.8.12:

• 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
  in milliseconds) by saving this as /etc/dbus-1/system-local.conf:

  <busconfig>
    <limit name="auth_timeout">5000</limit>
  </busconfig>

  (fd.o #86431, Simon McVittie)

• Add a message in syslog/the Journal when the auth_timeout is exceeded

Security fix backported from 1.8.10:

• Increase dbus-daemon's RLIMIT_NOFILE rlimit to 65536
  so that CVE-2014-3636 part A cannot exhaust the system bus'
  file descriptors, completing the incomplete fix in 1.8.8.

The "least civilized in the entire galaxy" release.

Security fixes backported from 1.8.8:

• 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 backported from 1.8.6:

• On Linux ≥ 2.6.37-rc4, if sendmsg() fails with ETOOMANYREFS, silently drop
  the message. This prevents an attack in which a malicious client can
  make dbus-daemon disconnect a system service, which is a local
  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.

Security fix backported from 1.8.4:

  flaw in dbus-daemon, part of the reference implementation of D-Bus.
  Additionally, in highly unusual environments the same flaw could lead to
  a side channel between processes that should not be able to communicate.
  (CVE-2014-3477, fd.o #78979)

The “soul of this machine has improved” release.

This version starts a new stable branch of D-Bus: only bug fixes will
be accepted into 1.6.x. Other changes will now go to the 1.7.x branch.

Summary of changes since 1.4.x:

• New requirements
  · PTHREAD_MUTEX_RECURSIVE on Unix
  · compiler support for 64-bit integers (int64_t or equivalent)

• D-Bus Specification v0.19

• New dbus-daemon features
  · <allow own_prefix="com.example.Service"/> rules allow the service to
    own names like com.example.Service.Instance3
  · optional systemd integration when checking at_console policies
  · --nopidfile option, mainly for use by systemd
  · path_namespace and arg0namespace may appear in match rules
  · eavesdropping is disabled unless the match rule contains eavesdrop=true

• New public API
  · functions to validate various string types (dbus_validate_path() etc.)
  · dbus_type_is_valid()
  · DBusBasicValue, a union of every basic type

• Bug fixes
  · removed an unsafe reimplementation of recursive mutexes
  · dbus-daemon no longer busy-loops if it has far too many file descriptors
  · dbus-daemon.exe --print-address works on Windows
  · all the other bug fixes from 1.4.20

• Other major implementation changes
  · on Linux, dbus-daemon uses epoll if supported, for better scalability
  · dbus_threads_init() ignores its argument and behaves like
    dbus_threads_init_default() instead
  · removed the per-connection link cache, improving dbus-daemon performance

• Developer features
  · optional Valgrind instrumentation (--with-valgrind)
  · optional Stats interface on the dbus-daemon (--enable-stats)
  · optionally abort whenever malloc() fails (--enable-embedded-tests
    and export DBUS_MALLOC_CANNOT_FAIL=1)

 • Fix for CVE-2010-4352: sending messages with excessively-nested variants can
   crash the bus. The existing restriction to 64-levels of nesting previously
   only applied to the static type signature; now it also applies to dynamic
   nesting using variants. Thanks to Rémi Denis-Courmont for discoving this
   issue.
