Description

The image creation configuration in aaa_base before 16.26.1 for openSUSE 13.1 KDE adds the root user to the "users" group when installing from a live image, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information and possibly have other unspecified impacts, as demonstrated by reading /etc/shadow.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-aaa_base
  • suse-upgrade-aaa_base-extras
  • suse-upgrade-aaa_base-malloccheck

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.
