Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 8.10 : redhat-cluster, redhat-cluster-suite vulnerabilities (USN-875-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2009-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Multiple insecure temporary file handling vulnerabilities were
discovered in Red Hat Cluster. A local attacker could exploit these to
overwrite arbitrary local files via symlinks. (CVE-2008-4192,
CVE-2008-4579, CVE-2008-4580, CVE-2008-6552)

It was discovered that CMAN did not properly handle malformed
configuration files. An attacker could cause a denial of service (via
CPU consumption and memory corruption) in a node if the attacker were
able to modify the cluster configuration for the node. (CVE-2008-6560).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.4
(CVSS2#E:F/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
