Description

nwclient.c in ncpfs before 2.2.6 does not drop root privileges before executing utilities using the NetWare client functions, which allows local users to gain privileges.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-ncpfs
  • suse-upgrade-ncpfs-devel

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.
