Description

The qemu guest agent in Qemu 1.4.1 and earlier, as used by Xen, when started in daemon mode, uses weak permissions for certain files, which allows local users to read and write to these files.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-guest-agent
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-guest-agent-win32
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-img
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-kvm
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-kvm-tools

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.
