High Nessus Plugin ID 64321
SynopsisThe remote AIX host is missing a security patch.
DescriptionThe AIX kernel contains a buffer which can overflow. A local attacker may exploit this overflow to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode or create a denial of service by causing an unexpected system halt.
The following files are vulnerable :
/usr/lib/boot/unix_64 /usr/lib/boot/unix_mp /usr/lib/boot/unix_up.
SolutionInstall the appropriate interim fix.
