Description Pedro Sampaio 2019-10-24 13:21:45 UTC
Incorrect scoping of kill operations in MongoDB Server's packaged SysV init scripts allow users with write access to the PID file to insert arbitrary PIDs to be killed when the root user stops the MongoDB process via SysV init. This issue affects: MongoDB Inc. MongoDB Server v4.0 versions prior to 4.0.11; v3.6 versions prior to 3.6.14; v3.4 versions prior to 3.4.22.

Affects: fedora-29 [bug 1765184]

Comment 5 Riccardo Schirone 2019-12-09 14:23:53 UTC
Red Hat Update Infrastructure 3 is not affected by this flaw because it is now only supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, which uses systemd and was already fixed as part of CVE-2018-16888.

Comment 6 Cedric Buissart 2020-02-17 08:50:12 UTC

This issue affects the mongodb packages as shipped in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6 release of Red Hat Software Collections. For the Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 7 release of Red Hat Software Collections, refer to systemd CVE-2018-16888.

Red Hat Satellite 6 is using MongoDB, but is not considered vulnerable because it is using the systemd service file. Please refer to CVE-2018-16888.
