Deserialization of Untrusted Data
fw_dbus.py in system-config-firewall 1.2.29 and earlier uses the pickle Python module unsafely during D-Bus communication between the GUI and the backend, which might allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted serialized object.
CWE-502 - Deserialization of Untrusted Data
Deserialization of untrusted data vulnerabilities enable an attacker to replace or manipulate a serialized object, replacing it with malicious data. When the object is deserialized at the victim's end the malicious data is able to compromise the victim’s system. The exploit can be devastating, its impact may range from privilege escalation, broken access control, or denial of service attacks to allowing unauthorized access to the application's internal code and logic which can compromise the entire system.
