Description

The (1) ncpmount, (2) ncpumount, and (3) ncplogin programs in ncpfs 2.2.6 do not properly create lock files, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (application failure) via unspecified vectors that trigger the creation of a /etc/mtab~ file that persists after the program exits.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-ncpfs
  • suse-upgrade-ncpfs-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-ncpfs-64bit
  • suse-upgrade-ncpfs-devel

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.
