EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : freeradius (EulerOS-SA-2019-1747)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 126874


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the freeradius package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- It was discovered freeradius does not correctly configure logrotate, allowing a local attacker who already has control of the radiusd user to escalate his privileges to root, by tricking logrotate into writing a radiusd-writable file to a directory normally inaccessible by the radiusd user.(CVE-2019-10143)

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


Update the affected freeradius package.
