Vulnerability CVE-2007-5686


Published: 2007-10-28   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
initscripts in rPath Linux 1 sets insecure permissions for the /var/log/btmp file, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information regarding authentication attempts. NOTE: because sshd detects the insecure permissions and does not log certain events, this also prevents sshd from logging failed authentication attempts by remote attackers.

Type:

CWE-264

(Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls)
