Description Tomas Hoger 2009-04-01 13:32:05 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-0115 to the following vulnerability:

multipath-tools in SUSE openSUSE 10.3 through 11.0 and SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 uses world-writable permissions for the
socket file (aka /var/run/multipathd.sock), which allows local users
to send arbitrary commands to the multipath daemon.
