Description

usr/log.c in iscsid in open-iscsi (iscsi-initiator-utils) before 2.0-865 uses a semaphore with insecure permissions (world-writable/world-readable) for managing log messages using shared memory, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (hang) by grabbing the semaphore.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-open-iscsi
  • 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.
