Vulnerability Assessment Details

SSA-2003-141-06 quotacheck security fix in rc.M

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
SSA-2003-141-06 quotacheck security fix in rc.M

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

An upgraded sysvinit package is available which fixes a problem with
the use of quotacheck in /etc/rc.d/rc.M. The original version of
rc.M calls quotacheck like this:

echo "Checking filesystem quotas: /sbin/quotacheck -avugM"
/sbin/quotacheck -avugM

The 'M' option is wrong. This causes the filesystem to be remounted,
and in the process any mount flags such as nosuid, nodev, noexec,
and the like, will be reset. The correct option to use here is 'm',
which does not attempt to remount the partition:

echo "Checking filesystem quotas: /sbin/quotacheck -avugm"
/sbin/quotacheck -avugm

We recommend sites using file system quotas upgrade to this new package,
or edit /etc/rc.d/rc.M accordingly.
