Description Bala.FA 2013-07-29 06:50:24 EDT
errata tool reports secalert for glusterfs-fuse

File /usr/bin/fusermount-glusterfs on x86_64 is setuid root but is not on the setxid whitelist
Comment 1 Amar Tumballi 2013-07-29 14:04:16 EDT
Bala, looks like '/usr/bin/fusermount' from package 'fuse' also has same setxid bits enabled. We just need fusermount-glusterfs to be added to the whitelist then.

Comment 2 Amar Tumballi 2013-08-23 14:24:01 EDT
Issue fixed with fixing the modes.
Comment 4 Amar Tumballi 2013-10-09 01:22:04 EDT
Steps to check:

On any glusterfs version (not on RHS or on RHS, before glusterfs-
amar@ganaka:~/work/rhs-glusterfs$ ls -l /usr/bin/fusermount-glusterfs
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 102192 Oct  5 00:03 /usr/local/bin/fusermount-glusterfs

with latest rhs, you don't see the setuid set on the file. (ie, no 's' in the mode bits).
