AIX 6.1 TL 0 : powerha (IV76943) (deprecated)

High Nessus Plugin ID 85943


This plugin has been deprecated.


IBM PowerHA SystemMirror has a systems management feature (CSPOC) which includes an option to allow users to change their password cluster-wide. Once added to this list, a non-root user may be able to exploit a vulnerability in one of the scripts shipped with the product to switch user (su) to the root user.

This plugin has been deprecated and replaced with aix_powerha_advisory.nasl (plugin ID 94674) to more accurately check for multiple potential fixes.
