Hi, y’all - quick update for all you #Linux admins. The Linux PwnKit vulnerability is a nasty one, giving an attacker full root access on most major Linux distros. Over on the Automox Blog, our very own @Peter-Automox has written a piece that includes a worklet for quick remediation.

Note: the evaluation script simply passes to remediation, which will disable pkexec's ability to operate as intended. Again, please thoroughly test before applying to systems in production. Check out Peter’s blog for the complete worklet: Linux PwnKit Vulnerability Gives Full Root Access on Most Major Distributions
