|Bugzilla:||526068: CVE-2009-3889 CVE-2009-3939 kernel: megaraid_sas permissions in sysfs|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
The poll_mode_io file for the megaraid_sas driver in the Linux kernel 188.8.131.52 and earlier has world-writable permissions, which allows local users to change the I/O mode of the driver by modifying this file.
This issue did not affect the version of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, as it does not implement the sysfs file system ("/sys/"), through which poll_mode_io file is exposed by the megaraid_sas driver.
Issue was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0076.html , https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0046.html and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1635.html respectively.
