Ubuntu Security Notice USN-766-1             April 27, 2009
acpid vulnerability
CVE-2009-0798
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
  acpid                           1.0.4-1ubuntu11.2

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  acpid                           1.0.4-5ubuntu9.3

Ubuntu 8.10:
  acpid                           1.0.6-9ubuntu4.8.10.2

Ubuntu 9.04:
  acpid                           1.0.6-9ubuntu4.9.04.2

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that acpid did not properly handle a large number of
connections. A local user could exploit this and monopolize CPU resources,
leading to a denial of service.
