Description

gnomesu-pam-backend in libgnomesu 1.0.0 prints an error message but proceeds with the non-error code path upon failure of the setgid or setuid function, which allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging access to two unprivileged user accounts, and running many processes under one of these accounts.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libgnomesu
  • suse-upgrade-libgnomesu-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libgnomesu-lang
  • suse-upgrade-libgnomesu0

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.
