PCWorld: Increasingly stiff competition in the database market has claimed another victim, as InfiniDB has ceased operations effective immediately with plans to file for bankruptcy.
D-Bus 1.3.0 through 1.6.x before 1.6.24 and 1.8.x before 1.8.8 does not properly close connections for processes that have terminated, which allows local users to cause a denial of service via a D-bus message containing a D-Bus connection file descriptor.
The bus_connections_check_reply function in config-parser.c in D-Bus before 1.6.24 and 1.8.x before 1.8.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a large number of method calls.
The dbus-daemon in D-Bus before 1.6.24 and 1.8.x before 1.8.8 does not properly close old connections, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (incomplete connection consumption and prevention of new connections) via a large number of incomplete connections.
Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in Baby Gekko before 1.2.2f allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the (1) id parameter to admin/index.php or the (2) username or (3) password parameter in blocks/loginbox/loginbox.template.php to index.php. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.
The Debian acpi-support package before 0.140-5+deb7u3 allows local users to gain privileges via vectors related to the "user's environment."
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in spacewalk-java 1.2.39, 1.7.54, and 2.0.2 in Spacewalk and Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite 5.4 through 5.6 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted request that is not properly handled when logging.
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 remote attackers 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.
Phoronix: The boycotting of systemd has led to the creation of uselessd, a new init daemon based off systemd that tries to strip out the "unnecessary" features.
