Oracle GlassFish Server 2.1.1.x < 2.1.1.29 Mozilla NSS ASN.1 Structure Handling RCE (October 2016 CPU)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by a remote code execution
vulnerability.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the Oracle GlassFish
Server running on the remote host is 2.1.1.x prior to 2.1.1.29. It is,
therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the
Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) component due to improper
validation of user-supplied input when parsing ASN.1 structures. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via crafted ASN.1
data in an X.509 certificate, to cause a heap-based buffer overflow,
resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of
arbitrary code.
