CBL Mariner 2.0 Security Update: util-linux (CVE-2024-28085)

high Nessus Plugin ID 193705


The remote CBL Mariner host is missing one or more security updates.


The version of util-linux installed on the remote CBL Mariner 2.0 host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the CVE-2024-28085 advisory.

- wall in util-linux through 2.40, often installed with setgid tty permissions, allows escape sequences to be sent to other users' terminals through argv. (Specifically, escape sequences received from stdin are blocked, but escape sequences received from argv are not blocked.) There May be plausible scenarios where this leads to account takeover. (CVE-2024-28085)

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


Update the affected packages.
