Description David Jorm 2014-10-14 11:49:57 UTC
Multiple tmp file race condition flaws were found in eDeploy. One of these flaws allowed a local attacker to overwrite a kernel image that would be used on nodes provisioned by eDeploy. In combination with an unauthenticated remote code execution exploit, a remote attacker could use this flaw to compromise the kernel image provisioned by eDeploy.

This issue was discovered by Kurt Seifried of Red Hat Product Security.

Comment 3 Kurt Seifried 2015-03-17 19:45:06 UTC
Multiple tmp vulns, some leading to things like kernel modification, packages 
being installed as root, etc. This means any local access == root access
