Description

event.c in acpid (aka acpid2) before 2.0.11 does not have an appropriate umask setting during execution of event-handler scripts, which might allow local users to (1) perform write operations within directories created by a script, or (2) read files created by a script, via standard filesystem system calls.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-acpid
  • suse-upgrade-acpid-debuginfo
  • suse-upgrade-acpid-debugsource

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.
