    Vulnerability Name:

    CVE-1999-1492 (CCN-2104)

    Assigned:1998-05-27
    Published:1998-05-27
    Updated:1998-05-27
    Summary:Patches 2291 and 2848 for IRIX introduced the diskalign(1) utility, which is used to configure IRIX for data streaming applications. A vulnerability in the diskalign tool could allow a local attacker to create arbitrary root owned files and ultimately gain root privileges. This vulnerability also affects the diskperf(1) command introduced in the same patches.
