Secunia Advisory SA21867

Where:

Local system

Impact:

Privilege escalation

Solution Status:

Unpatched

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Netragard has reported a vulnerability in Roxio Toast Titanium, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges.

The vulnerability is caused due to the "dejavu_manual.rb" Ruby script being created insecurely in the "/tmp" directory. This can be exploited via a race condition to execute arbitrary code with root privileges when an administrator does a manual backup in Deja Vu.

Some other Ruby scripts may also be created insecurely.

The vulnerability has been reported in version 7. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Grant only trusted users access to affected systems.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Adriel T. Desautels, Netragard
