AIX 7.1 : bos.mp64 (U854839)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66275

Synopsis

The remote AIX host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

The remote host is missing AIX PTF U854839, which is related to the security of the package bos.mp64.

The root owned files can be read by non-root users only when the directory permissions are set allowed for non-root users. For example, a non-root user won't be able to read anything under /etc/security, but can read files like /etc/rc.wpars under ftp.

Solution

Install the appropriate missing security-related fix.
