Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2006:027: cron

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cron package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:027 (cron).


Vixie Cron is the default CRON daemon in all SUSE Linux based
distributions.

The code in do_command.c in Vixie cron does not check the return code
of a setuid call, which might permit local users to gain root rights
if setuid fails in cases such as PAM failures or resource limits.

This problem is known to affect only distributions with Linux 2.6
kernels, but the package was updated for all distributions for
completeness.

This problem is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2006-2607.
