Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in BlueZ might allow remote attackers to bypass
security restrictions.

Background
==========

Set of tools to manage Bluetooth devices for Linux.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-wireless/bluez            < 5.54                     >= 5.54

Description
===========

It was discovered that the HID and HOGP profiles implementations in
BlueZ did not specifically require bonding between the device and the
host.

Impact
======

A remote attacker with adjacent access could impersonate an existing
HID device, cause a Denial of Service condition or escalate privileges.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All BlueZ users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-wireless/bluez-5.54"
