Description

HP-UX B.11.00 and B.11.11 with B6848AB GTK+ Support Libraries installed uses insecure directory permissions, which allows local users to gain privileges via files in /opt/gnome/src/GLib/.

Solution(s)

  • hpux-update-gettext-gettext-src
  • hpux-update-glib-glib-src
  • hpux-update-gtk+-gtk+-src

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.
