Subject: Re: CVE Request -- dbus -- Local DoS via messages
 with non-native byte order

----- Original Message -----
> Hello, Josh, Steve, vendors,
> It was found that D-BUS message bus service / messaging facility did
> not update the byte-order flag of the message properly by swapping the
> byte order of incoming messages into their native endiannes. A local,
> authenticated user could use this flaw to send a specially-crafted
> message to a system service (like Avahi or NetworkManager), using the
> system bus, potentially leading to disconnect of such a service from
> system bus (denial of service).
