Description

The eCryptfs support utilities (ecryptfs-utils) 73-0ubuntu6.1 on Ubuntu 9.04 stores the mount passphrase in installation logs, which might allow local users to obtain access to the filesystem by reading the log files from disk. NOTE: the log files are only readable by root.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-ecryptfs-utils

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.
