SuSE Linux K-Menu YAST Control Center Priviledge Escalation Vulnerability



SuSE Linux K-Menu YAST Control Center Priviledge Escalation Vulnerability



A vulnerability exists in the implementation of 

placing the SuSE YAST Control Center in the K Menu.  

Normally, one would be required to authenticate as 

root before being granted access to the YAST Control 

Center.  When placing the 'preferences' submenu in 

the K Menu (in the 'submenu' section under the 

'Menus' tab of the K menu panel preferences), 

however, one can not only access, but make changes to 

the options in the YAST control center without having 

to authenticate as root.
