Description

The lxc-sshd template (templates/lxc-sshd.in) in LXC before 1.0.0.beta2 uses read-write permissions when mounting /sbin/init, which allows local users to gain privileges by modifying the init file.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-lxc
  • suse-upgrade-lxc-devel
  • suse-upgrade-sle-sdk-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.
