CESA-2017:0907

最新バージョンのutil-linuxが、Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 からご利用いただけるようになりました。

Red Hat製品のセキュリティ及び品質は大変ご好評いただいております。

今回の最新バージョンVulnerability Scoring System(CVSS)は、各セキュリティホールへのアクセス安全面を厳重にクラス分けし、確実・安全に詳細レポートをお送りいたします。参照セクションのリンクをクリックしてください。

The util-linux packages contain a large variety of low-level system utilities
that are necessary for a Linux system to function. Among others, these include
the fdisk configuration tool and the login program.

Security 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. (CVE-2017-2616)

Red Hat would like to thank Tobias Stöckmann for reporting this issue.

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. (BZ#1414481)

Bugs Fixed

1414481 – findmnt –target behaviour changed in 7.3, shows all mount-points in chroot
1418710 – CVE-2017-2616 util-linux: Sending SIGKILL to other processes with root privileges via su
