Description

utils/ecryptfs-recover-private in ecryptfs-utils before 90 does not establish a subdirectory with safe permissions, which might allow local users to bypass intended access restrictions via standard filesystem operations during the recovery process.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-ecryptfs-utils
  • suse-upgrade-ecryptfs-utils-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-ecryptfs-utils-x86

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.
