Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> Subject: CVE-2009-3556 kernel: qla2xxx NPIV vport management pseudofiles are world writable As far as I know, this only affects Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The RHBA-2008:0314 update introduced N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) support in the qla2xxx driver, resulting in two new sysfs pseudo files, "/sys/class/scsi_host/[a qla2xxx host]/vport_create" and "vport_delete". These two files were world-writable by default, allowing a local user to change SCSI host attributes. This flaw only affects systems using the qla2xxx driver and NPIV capable hardware. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2009-3556 Thanks, Eugene
