Description

Adam Collard discovered that Bazaar did not properly handle host names in 'bzr+ssh://' URLs. A remote attacker could use this to construct a bazaar repository URL that when accessed could run arbitrary code with the privileges of the user.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-bzr
  • ubuntu-upgrade-python-bzrlib

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.
