BUG REPORT: possible security issue due to world writable file on Symantec Encryption Management Server


Article ID: 158829


Updated On:


Encryption Management Server


During a security audit the file "/etc/ovid/ca-bundle-spc.crt" was found to be world writable for non root users. This might allow an attacker to modify this file if access to the server is gained.


A file with world writable permissions instead of write permissions only for the Linux super user "root" was found on the Encryption Server.


This possible security problem is solved in 3.3.1 MP1.

Please contact technical support if a workaround for previous versions is required.

Applies To

PGP Universal Server or Symantec Encryption Management Server below version 3.3.1 MP1.
