Description

pam_mount 0.10 through 0.45, when luserconf is enabled, does not verify mountpoint and source ownership before mounting a user-defined volume, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions via a local mount.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-pam_mount
  • suse-upgrade-pam_mount-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-pam_mount-64bit
  • 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.
