Debian DLA-1510-1 : glusterfs security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 117618
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMultiple security vulnerabilities were discovered in GlusterFS, a clustered file system. Buffer overflows and path traversal issues may lead to information disclosure, denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.
To resolve the security vulnerabilities the following limitations were made in GlusterFS :
- open,read,write on special files like char and block are no longer permitted
- io-stat xlator can dump stat info only to /run/gluster directory
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 3.5.2-2+deb8u4.
We recommend that you upgrade your glusterfs packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
