Scientific Linux Security Update : util-linux on SL7.x x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 99354
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionSecurity Fix(es) :
- A race condition was found in the way su handled the management of child processes. A local authenticated attacker could use this flaw to kill other processes with root privileges under specific conditions.
Bug Fix(es) :
- The 'findmnt --target <path>' command prints all file systems where the mount point directory is <path>.
Previously, when used in the chroot environment, 'findmnt --target <path>' incorrectly displayed all mount points. The command has been fixed so that it now checks the mount point path and returns information only for the relevant mount point.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
