Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. Security update: The mount and umount program did not set their umaskproperly. Local attackers could exploit this flaw to write arbitrarycontent into the mtab file because upon creation this file was worldwriteable.

Solution(s)

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.
