Amazon Linux AMI : xfsprogs (ALAS-2015-622)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87348

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that the xfs_metadump tool of the xfsprogs suite did not fully adhere to the standards of obfuscation described in its man page. In case a user with the necessary privileges used xfs_metadump and relied on the advertised obfuscation, the generated data could contain unexpected traces of potentially sensitive information.

Solution

Run 'yum update xfsprogs' to update your system.
