Scientific Linux Security Update : setroubleshoot and setroubleshoot-plugins on SL6.x i386/x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 91806

Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The setroubleshoot-plugins package provides a set of analysis plugins for use with setroubleshoot. Each plugin has the capacity to analyze SELinux AVC data and system data to provide user friendly reports describing how to interpret SELinux AVC denials.

Security Fix(es) :

- Shell command injection flaws were found in the way the setroubleshoot executed external commands. A local attacker able to trigger certain SELinux denials could use these flaws to execute arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2016-4445, CVE-2016-4989)

- Shell command injection flaws were found in the way the setroubleshoot allow_execmod and allow_execstack plugins executed external commands. A local attacker able to trigger an execmod or execstack SELinux denial could use these flaws to execute arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2016-4444, CVE-2016-4446)

The CVE-2016-4444 and CVE-2016-4446 issues were discovered by Milos Malik (Red Hat) and the CVE-2016-4445 and CVE-2016-4989 issues were discovered by Red Hat Product Security.
