Debian Security Advisory

DLA-1429-1 sssd -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
16 Jul 2018
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 902860.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-10852.
More information:

The UNIX pipe which sudo uses to contact SSSD and read the available sudo rules from SSSD has too wide permissions, which means that anyone who can send a message using the same raw protocol that sudo and SSSD use can read the sudo rules available for any user.

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.11.7-3+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your sssd packages.
