Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for xfsprogs RHSA-2015:2151-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'xfsprogs'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'xfsprogs'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The xfsprogs packages contain a set of
commands to use the XFS file system, including the mkfs.xfs command to construct
an XFS system.

It was discovered that the xfs_metadump tool of the xfsprogs suite did not
fully adhere to the standards of obfuscation described in its man page. In
case a user with the necessary privileges used xfs_metadump and relied on
the advertised obfuscation, the generated data could contain unexpected
traces of potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2012-2150)

The xfsprogs packages have been upgraded to upstream version 3.2.2, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.
This release also includes updates present in upstream version 3.2.3,
although it omits the mkfs.xfs default disk format change (for metadata
checksumming) which is present upstream. (BZ#1223991)

Users of xfsprogs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix these bugs and add these enhancements.

Affected Software/OS:
xfsprogs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
