A security issue has been reported in IBM Systems Director Agent, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to bypass certain security restrictions.
The security issue is caused due to execute permissions for the "system" group being assigned to the "reset_diragent_keys" script. This can be exploited to potentially perform certain restricted actions by executing the script.
Successful exploitation requires that the attacker belongs to the "system" group.
Solution: Apply APAR IC71821.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by the vendor.
