FreeBSD Security Advisory 2000.62

FreeBSD Security Advisory 2000.62

Authored by The FreeBSD Project | Site freebsd.org

FreeBSD Security Advisory FreeBSD-SA-00:62 - A "format string vulnerability" was discovered in the top(1) utility which allows unprivileged local users to cause the top process to execute arbitrary code. The top utility runs with increased privileges as a member of the kmem group, which allows it to read from kernel memory (but not write to it). A process with the ability to read from kernel memory can monitor privileged data such as network traffic, disk buffers and terminal activity, and may be able to leverage this to obtain further privileges on the local system or on other systems, including root privileges.
