More information:

Multiple security vulnerabilities were discovered in GlusterFS, a clustered file system. Buffer overflows and path traversal issues may lead to information disclosure, denial-of-service or the execution of arbitrary code.

To resolve the security vulnerabilities the following limitations were made in GlusterFS:

  • open,read,write on special files like char and block are no longer permitted
  • io-stat xlator can dump stat info only to /run/gluster directory

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 3.5.2-2+deb8u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your glusterfs packages.
