IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VULNERABILITY:

Recenly discovered that a potential security vulnerability is found in Mathematica 11.1, 11.2 and 11.3 on Linux operating systems. Under certain circumstances, users of your system could execute arbitrary Wolfram Language code as root. Recent versions of Wolfram systems containing VernierLink were shipped with a vulnerability potentially allowing non-root users to run arbitrary commands as root. This only affects machines where the Wolfram System was installed as root. We therefore strongly recommend you apply the following steps to all Linux systems on which any of these Wolfram System versions are installed.

Resolution:

If you do not use or plan to use the VernierLink functionality in Mathematica, remove the vulnerable file:

sudo rm /etc/udev/rules.d/wolfram-vernierlink-libusb.rules 

You may be prompted to provide admin-level credentials to complete this action.

If you are connecting Mathematica to Vernier-branded external devices using VernierLink, adjust the permissions of this file:

sudo chmod 644 /etc/udev/rules.d/wolfram-vernierlink-libusb.rules 

You may be prompted to provide admin-level credentials to complete this action.
