Description

crontab in Vixie cron 4.1, when running with the -e option, allows local users to read the cron files of other users by changing the file being edited to a symlink. NOTE: there is insufficient information to know whether this is a duplicate of CVE-2001-0235.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-cron
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release

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.
