Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72506
SynopsisA clustered file system on the remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionA version of IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) prior to 18.104.22.168 / 22.214.171.124 is installed on the remote host. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability. An authenticated, non-root attacker can exploit this vulnerability by passing certain arguments to 'setuid' commands, potentially causing the GPFS daemon to crash.
SolutionUpgrade to GPFS 126.96.36.199 / 188.8.131.52 or later.
