Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-01 23:15:53 UTC
CVE-2009-0115 (
  multipath-tools in SUSE openSUSE 10.3 through 11.0 and SUSE Linux
  Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 uses world-writable permissions for the
  socket file (aka /var/run/multipathd.sock), which allows local users
  to send arbitrary commands to the multipath daemon.

GLSA vote: yes.
Comment 10 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2010-01-29 23:21:39 UTC
+1 vote as the maintainer. Anybody writing to the socket locally can cause SAN disks to go offline, potentially causing an entire OCFS2 cluster to fence/panic.
Comment 11 solar (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-01-29 23:26:35 UTC
I've confirmed this problem exists in my production cluster. chmod o-rwx /var/run/multipath.sock works around it at runtime. But it's less then ideal.
Please fire off a GLSA for this to raise awareness.
Comment 12 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2010-01-29 23:31:01 UTC
GLSA request filed.
