Description

Flatpak before 1.0.7, and 1.1.x and 1.2.x before 1.2.3, exposes /proc in the apply_extra script sandbox, which allows attackers to modify a host-side executable file.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-flatpak
  • suse-upgrade-flatpak-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libflatpak0
  • suse-upgrade-typelib-1_0-flatpak-1_0

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.
