Description

GNOME GDM 2.8, 2.12, 2.14, and 2.15, when the "face browser" feature is enabled, allows local users to access the "Configure Login Manager" functionality using their own password instead of the root password, which can be leveraged to gain additional privileges.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-gdm

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.
