<p>udisks is an abstraction for enumerating block devices and performing
operations on them.
<p>A stack-based buffer overflow can be triggered when udisks is given a
long path name as a mount point.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A local attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All udisks 1.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=sys-fs/udisks-1.0.5:0"
<p>All udisks 2.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=sys-fs/udisks-2.1.3"
