Description

ld in SUSE Linux 9.1 through 10.0, and SLES 9, in certain circumstances when linking binaries, can leave an empty RPATH or RUNPATH, which allows local attackers to execute arbitrary code as other users via by running an ld-linked application from the current directory, which could contain an attacker-controlled library file.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-binutils
  • suse-upgrade-binutils-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-binutils-64bit
  • suse-upgrade-binutils-x86

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.
