Description

The guestfish command in libguestfs 1.20.12, 1.22.7, and earlier, when using the --remote or --listen option, does not properly check the ownership of /tmp/.guestfish-$UID/ when creating a temporary socket file in this directory, which allows local users to write to the socket and execute arbitrary commands by creating /tmp/.guestfish-$UID/ in advance.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-guestfs-data
  • suse-upgrade-guestfs-tools
  • suse-upgrade-guestfsd
  • suse-upgrade-libguestfs-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libguestfs0
  • suse-upgrade-sle-sdk-release
