Description

utils/mount.ecryptfs_private.c in ecryptfs-utils before 90 does not properly check mountpoint permissions, which allows local users to effectively replace any directory with a new filesystem, and consequently gain privileges, via a mount system call.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-ecryptfs-utils
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-ecryptfs-utils-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-ecryptfs-utils-gui
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-ecryptfs-utils-python

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.
