Security: insecure SSL key file permissions

A new no-critical security flaw has been published by Secunia:

A security issue has been reported in VMware, which potentially can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain knowledge of sensitive information.

The problem is caused due to missing return code checks of the “chmod()” call in when setting permissions for SSL key files. This may potentially result in insecure read permissions being set on the key file.

Read the VMware original advisory and patch your systems as soon as possible.
