DESCRIPTION:
IBM has reported a security issue in IBM Advanced Settings Utility
(ASU) and IBM Bootable Media Creator (BoMC), which can be exploited
by malicious, local users to perform certain actions with escalated
privileges.

The security issue is caused due to the applications using log and
temporary files in an insecure manner, which can be exploited to e.g.
overwrite arbitrary files via symlink attacks.

The security issue is reported in versions 9.21 and prior when
running on IBM Flex System, System x, or BladeCenter system.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 9.30.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Reported by the vendor.
