Description

SystemTap 1.7, 1.6.7, and probably other versions, when unprivileged mode is enabled, allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (kernel panic and crash) via vectors related to crafted DWARF data, which triggers a read of an invalid pointer.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-systemtap
  • suse-upgrade-systemtap-docs
  • suse-upgrade-systemtap-runtime
  • suse-upgrade-systemtap-sdt-devel
  • suse-upgrade-systemtap-server

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.
