The remote host contains a program that could allow a user to delete
or manipulate files without authorization.
According to its self-reported version, the Inventory Scout install on
the remote host is a version prior to 188.8.131.52. It, therefore, could
allow a local user to delete arbitrary files or have Inventory Scout
operations operate on arbitrary files using a symlink attack.
See also :
Upgrade to Inventory Scout 184.108.40.206 or later.
Alternatively, remove the setuid bit from the affected files using the
following commands :
- chmod 555 /opt/IBMinvscout/bin/invscoutClient_VPD_Survey
- chmod 555 /opt/IBMinvscout/sbin/invscout_lsvpd
Note that this will disable functionality of these commands for all
users except root.
