 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in acpid:
 
 acpid.c in acpid before 2.0.9 does not properly handle a situation in
 which a process has connected to acpid.socket but is not reading any
 data, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (daemon
 hang) via a crafted application that performs a connect system call
 but no read system calls (CVE-2011-1159).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
