Subject: CVE request: local privilege escalation flaws in Red Star OS 3.0
 & 2.0 desktop

Hi All,
        Red Star OS 3.0 desktop & 2.0 desktop ship with local privilege
escalation vulnerabilities due to insecure files permissions
on configuration and script files executed with root privileges.

Red Star 3.0 desktop ships with a world-writeable udev rules
"/etc/udev/rules.d/85-hplj10xx.rules" which can be
modified to include "RUN+=" arguments executing commands as root by
udev.d. An example of exploitation
of this vulnerability can be seen here

Red Star 2.0 desktop ships with a world-writeable "/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit"
which can be abused to execute commands on
boot. An example exploitation of this vulnerability is shown here

A local attacker can leverage these vulnerabilities to elevate
privileges to root and compromise Red Star platforms.

Please can CVE numbers be assigned for these flaws.
