Description

In HylaFAX+ through 7.0.2 and HylaFAX Enterprise, the faxsetup utility calls chown on files in user-owned directories. By winning a race, a local attacker could use this to escalate his privileges to root.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-hylafax
  • suse-upgrade-hylafax-client
  • suse-upgrade-libfaxutil7_0_3

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.
