- Date Reported:
- 27 Aug 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 871321.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-11746.
- More information:
Tenshi creates a tenshi.pid file after dropping privileges to a non-root account, which might allow local users to kill arbitrary processes by leveraging access to this non-root account for tenshi.pid modification before a root script executes a "kill `cat /pathname/tenshi.pid`" command.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 0.13-2+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your tenshi packages.
