<impact type="normal">
<p>
Local users could send arbitrary commands to the multipath daemon,
causing cluster failures and data loss.

</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
chmod o-rwx /var/run/multipath.sock
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All multipath-tools users should upgrade to the latest version:

<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=sys-fs/multipath-tools-0.4.8-r1&quot;</code>
<p>
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since November 13, 2009. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
