Due to a world-readable file, a local attacker can obtain the SQL database password used by Prewikka.
|Package||net-analyzer/prewikka on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.9.14-r2|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.9.14-r2|
Prewikka is a graphical front-end analysis console for the Prelude Hybrid IDS Framework.
The permissions of the prewikka.conf file are set world readable.
A local attacker could obtain the SQL database password used by Prewikka.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Prewikka users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/prewikka-0.9.14-r2"
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since May 18, 2009 . It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
