Issue/Introduction

After upgrading to 12.81.0.4260 for 3.10.0-1160.62.1.el7.x86_64 kernel support, issec does not show the version information.

When the 4260 build is running on an older kernel, the output is correct.

# uname -a

After the OS kernel is upgraded to 3.10.0-1160.62.1.el7.x86_64 (or CentOS 3.10.0-1160.66.1.el7.x86_64), the issec output stops showing the kernel and version information.

Environment

Privileged Identity Manager 12.8 SP1

Cause

The issue was caused by a buffer overrun in the se_loadtest binary, which is called as part of issec. It can be reproduced by running the command independently, which results in a segmentation fault.

# /opt/CA/AccessControl/lbin/se_loadtest  GetKernelVersion
VeRsIoN: 12.81-0 (4260) Compiled On:May 11 2022 21:20:36  Kernel: 3.10.0-1160.62.1.el7.x86_64-RH79 _LINUX70-3100-1160-62-1-RHELX86_64.X86_64Ru 30034
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Resolution

Fix T5C1184 was created to resolve the issue. The build of the fix is 12.81.0.4263, any installation with a higher build number will have the fix included.
