High Nessus Plugin ID 118382
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update for rpm fixes the following issues :
These security issues were fixed :
- CVE-2017-7500: rpm did not properly handle RPM
installations when a destination path was a symbolic
link to a directory, possibly changing ownership and
permissions of an arbitrary directory, and RPM files
being placed in an arbitrary destination (bsc#943457).
- CVE-2017-7501: rpm used temporary files with predictable
names when installing an RPM. An attacker with ability
to write in a directory where files will be installed
could create symbolic links to an arbitrary location and
modify content, and possibly permissions to arbitrary
files, which could be used for denial of service or
possibly privilege escalation (bsc#943457)
This non-security issue was fixed :
- Use ksym-provides tool [bsc#1077692]
This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.
