Description

An issue was discovered in evaluate_auto_mountpoint in btrfsmaintenance-functions in btrfsmaintenance through 0.4.1. Code execution as root can occur via a specially crafted filesystem label if btrfs-{scrub,balance,trim} are set to auto in /etc/sysconfig/btrfsmaintenance (this is not the default, though).

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-btrfsmaintenance

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.
