SGI_FAM Version


sgi_fam: A Silicon Graphics daemon that is an RPC server that tracks changes to the filesystem under the IRIX operating system.


The vulnerability can be exploited remotely by using carefully crafted RPC packets that are sent to the fam daemon. It can lead to unauthorized access to the names of files and directories on an IRIX system.

The problem

The sgi_fam daemon on IRIX 5.x and 6.x systems can be compromised which can reveal the names of files and directories on the system. Apparently, the contents of the files can not be read or modified. SGI is currently working on a solution. IRIX 6.5.8 and above will not be effected
