Description

libgssapi and libgssglue before 0.4 do not properly check privileges, which allows local users to load untrusted configuration files and execute arbitrary code via the GSSAPI_MECH_CONF environment variable, as demonstrated using mount.nfs.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libgssapi
  • suse-upgrade-libgssapi-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-libgssapi-64bit
  • suse-upgrade-libgssapi-x86
  • suse-upgrade-sap-aio-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.
