Description

util-linux/mdev.c in BusyBox before 1.21.0 uses 0777 permissions for parent directories when creating nested directories under /dev/, which allows local users to have unknown impact and attack vectors.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-busybox
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-busybox-petitboot

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.
