Debian DSA-2095-1 : lvm2 - insecure communication protocol

medium Nessus Plugin ID 48895


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


Alasdair Kergon discovered that the cluster logical volume manager daemon (clvmd) in LVM2, The Linux Logical Volume Manager, does not verify client credentials upon a socket connection, which allows local users to cause a denial of service.


Upgrade the lvm2 package.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 2.02.39-8.
