Scientific Linux Security Update : pacemaker on SL7.x x86_64

High Nessus Plugin ID 95852


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


Security Fix(es) :

- An authorization flaw was found in Pacemaker, where it did not properly guard its IPC interface. An attacker with an unprivileged account on a Pacemaker node could use this flaw to, for example, force the Local Resource Manager daemon to execute a script as root and thereby gain root access on the machine. (CVE-2016-7035)

Bug Fix(es) :

- The version of Pacemaker in Scientific Linux 7.3 incorporated an increase in the version number of the remote node protocol. Consequently, cluster nodes running Pacemaker in Scientific Linux 7.3 and remote nodes running earlier versions of Scientific Linux were not able to communicate with each other unless special precautions were taken. This update preserves the rolling upgrade capability.


Update the affected packages.
