Description


Paul Martin has reported a security issue in xfsdump, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose potentially sensitive information or manipulate data.

The security issue is caused due to xfs_fsr creating a temporary directory with insecure permissions within the function "tmp_init()" in fsr/xfs_fsr.c. This can be exploited to read or overwrite files created in this directory or subdirectories, potentially allowing for the disclosure of sensitive information or data manipulation.

The security issue is reported in versions prior to 2.2.45.


Solution:
Update to version 2.2.45.
