Apple Mac OS X NetInfo Manager Arbitrary File System Access
Local Access Required
Loss of Integrity
Mac OS X contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to gain access to unauthorized privileges. The issue is triggered caused by the behavior of NetInfo Manager, which runs setuid root and allows a user to traverse the filesystem as root. This flaw may lead to a loss of integrity.
Upgrade to version 10.2.2 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
