Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : setup (MDVSA-2015:184)
High Nessus Plugin ID 82459
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdated setup package fixes security vulnerability :
An issue has been identified in Mandriva Business Server 2's setup package where the /etc/shadow and /etc/gshadow files containing password hashes were created with incorrect permissions, making them world-readable (mga#14516).
This update fixes this issue by enforcing that those files are owned by the root user and shadow group, and are only readable by those two entities.
Note that this issue only affected new Mandriva Business Server 2 installations. Systems that were updated from previous Mandriva versions were not affected.
SolutionUpdate the affected setup package.
