Description

(a) mount and (b) umount in util-linux 2.14.1, 2.17.2, and probably other versions allow local users to determine the existence of restricted directories by (1) using the --guess-fstype command-line option or (2) attempting to mount a non-existent device, which generates different error messages depending on whether the directory exists.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-sys-apps-util-linux

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
