Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-07-03 07:56:21 UTC
modules/luksbootkeyfile/main.py in Calamares through 3.2.4 has a race condition between the time when the LUKS encryption keyfile is created and when secure permissions are set.

Created calamares tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1726566]

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2019-07-03 10:08:45 UTC
I will prepare an update when upstream releases a release with the fix, which should happen this week.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2019-07-03 11:53:30 UTC
Please note that the upstream version numbers in both CVEs are incorrect, all versions of Calamares up to and including 3.2.10 are affected.

Comment 4 Thomas Ward 2019-07-09 16:18:39 UTC
Please note that MITRE has updated the CVEs to reflect proper affected versions, and Calamares upstream has released a fix in version 3.2.11

Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2019-07-09 17:05:34 UTC
Right. I have already queued Calamares 3.2.11 updates for Fedora 29 and 30 (and built it for Rawhide, too, of course), see bug #1726566.
