DescriptionGNOME Keyring through 3.28.2 allows local users to retrieve login credentials via a Secret Service API call and the D-Bus interface if the keyring is unlocked, a similar issue to CVE-2008-7320. One perspective is that this occurs because available D-Bus protection mechanisms (involving the busconfig and policy XML elements) are not used. NOTE: the vendor disputes this because, according to the security model, untrusted applications must not be allowed to access the user's session bus socket.

The default keyring is automatically unlocked upon successful login.
The current behavior to access passwords via DBus is expected but
cannot be compromised by another user on the system. Users can choose
to use a separate keyring if they prefer to be prompted.
