Description

In SaltStack Salt through 2019.2.0, the salt-api NET API with the ssh client enabled is vulnerable to command injection. This allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access to the API endpoint to execute arbitrary code on the salt-api host.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-salt-api
  • ubuntu-upgrade-salt-common
  • ubuntu-upgrade-salt-master
  • ubuntu-upgrade-salt-minion

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.
