Description

ncpfs 2.2.6 and earlier attempts to use (1) ncpmount to append to the /etc/mtab file and (2) ncpumount to append to the /etc/mtab.tmp file without first checking whether resource limits would interfere, which allows local users to trigger corruption of the /etc/mtab file via a process with a small RLIMIT_FSIZE value, a related issue to CVE-2011-1089.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-ncpfs
  • suse-upgrade-ncpfs-32bit
  • 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.
