Description Colin Walters 2008-12-11 11:12:50 UTC
Created attachment 21062 [details] [review] update permissions This patch is relatively conservative; it adds send_destination= to all the rules (as is very important, see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18961). It also adds SetIdleHint into the default allow. From the source it looks that that method implementation checks the caller. Please review. Also an open question - do all the methods verify their caller? In that case the policy file can be *much* simpler; see: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dbus/2008-December/010717.html

For what it's worth, this is <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=510645>. I've backported Colin's patch to the version of CK in Debian 5.0 and proposed it for inclusion.

Any thoughts on this patch? I'm pushing a newer dbus into Fedora 11 and I'd like to get this bug fixed.

Sorry for the long delay. Thanks a lot for looking into this! David checked it and committed it to master already: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/ConsoleKit/commit/?id=e0d9cc359b3099307067107b59ec691418e280b8
