SUSE SLES15 Security Update : ceph (SUSE-SU-2023:1580-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 173448



The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


The remote SUSE Linux SLES15 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the SUSE-SU-2023:1580-1 advisory.

- A flaw was found in Openstack manilla owning a Ceph File system share, which enables the owner to read/write any manilla share or entire file system. The vulnerability is due to a bug in the volumes plugin in Ceph Manager. This allows an attacker to compromise Confidentiality and Integrity of a file system. Fixed in RHCS 5.2 and Ceph 17.2.2. (CVE-2022-0670)

- A privilege escalation flaw was found in Ceph. Ceph-crash.service allows a local attacker to escalate privileges to root in the form of a crash dump, and dump privileged information. (CVE-2022-3650)

- A flaw was found in Ceph, relating to the URL processing on RGW backends. An attacker can exploit the URL processing by providing a null URL to crash the RGW, causing a denial of service. (CVE-2022-3854)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the affected packages.
