Description

ppc64-diag 2.6.1 uses 0775 permissions for /tmp/diagSEsnap and does not properly restrict permissions for /tmp/diagSEsnap/snapH.tar.gz, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading files in this archive, as demonstrated by /var/log/messages and /etc/yaboot.conf.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-ppc64-diag

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.
