Secunia Advisory SA39194

Where:

Local system

Impact:

Security Bypass

Solution Status:

Unpatched

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some security issues have been reported in IBM Systems Director Agent, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to potentially bypass certain security restrictions.

The security issues are caused due to e.g. world execute permissions being set for the "diruninstall" and "wcitinst" scripts. This can be exploited to potentially perform certain restricted actions by executing the scripts.

The security issues are reported in version 6.1.2. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Restrict local access to trusted users only. The security issues will reportedly be fixed in version 6.1.2.3.
