FreeBSD : sysutils/openzfs-kmod -- critical permissions issues (2ed7e8db-e234-11ea-9392-002590bc43be)

high Nessus Plugin ID 139739



The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Andrew Walker reports : Issue 1 :

Users are always granted permissions to cd into a directory. The check for whether execute is present on directories is a de-facto no-op.
This cannot be mitigated without upgrading. Even setting an explicit 'deny - execute' NFSv4 ACE will be bypassed.

Issue 2 :

All ACEs for the owner_group ([email protected]) and regular groups (group:<foo>) are granted the current user. This means that POSIX mode 770 is de-facto 777, and the below ACL is also de-facto 777 because the groupmember check for builtin_administrators returns True.

[email protected][~]# getfacl testfile # file: testfile # owner: root # group: wheel group:builtin_administrators:rwxpDdaARWcCos:-------:allow


Update the affected package.
