CVE-2011-1551

Published: 30 March 2011

SUSE openSUSE Factory assigns ownership of the /var/log/cobbler/ directory tree to the web-service user account, which might allow local users to gain privileges by leveraging access to this account during root filesystem operations by the Cobbler daemon.

Notes

AuthorNote

looks like cobbler in natty has /var/log/cobbler set to
root:root, so we're not affected.
