Hello Colin, or anyone else affected,

Accepted thermald into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and

update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from
verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not
fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the
tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of
your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification .  Thank you in

Title:
  thermald: change the default dbus policy, make it more restrictive

Status in thermald package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in thermald source package in Trusty:
  Fix Released
Status in thermald source package in Bionic:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  org.freedesktop.thermald.conf default dbus policy should be more
  restrictive

  ===

  SRU Justification:

  [Impact]

  With the current dbus policy one can terminate thermald using:

  dbus-send --system --dest=org.freedesktop.thermald /org/freedesktop/thermald 
org.freedesktop.thermald.Terminate
  thermald can be send dbus

  ..fortunately init respawns thermald, but the policy is not
  restrictive enough, only root should be able to do this.

  Justification:

  This fix restricts the default policy so only root can send dbus
  messages to thermald.

  [Test Case]

  How to reproduce:

  dbus-send --system --dest=org.freedesktop.thermald /org/freedesktop/thermald 
org.freedesktop.thermald.Terminate
  thermald can be send dbus

  then use: dmesg and see that init has respawned thermald (which means
  it received the dbus message and handled it)

  With the fix, the dbus-send message won't kill thermald and hence one
  won't see the re-spawn message in dmesg.

  [Regression Potential]

  Cannot think of any, low to none. Thermald is not a default install,
  it is a new packaging in Trusty and is currently op-in, so this change
  has minimal impact. Regression potential is that users won't be able
  to communicate to thermald via dbus-send, which is not the recommended
  way to shut down thermald anyhow.

  Tested today on an AMD64 trusty install.
