Vulnerability Name:

CVE-2018-11134

Assigned:2018-05-31
Published:2018-05-31
Updated:2018-06-29
Summary:In order to perform actions that requires higher privileges, the Quest KACE System Management Appliance 8.0.318 relies on a message queue managed that runs with root privileges and only allows a set of commands. One of the available commands allows changing any user's password (including root). A low-privilege user could abuse this feature by changing the password of the 'kace_support' account, which comes disabled by default but has full sudo privileges.
