Scientific Linux Security Update : NetworkManager and libnl3 on SL7.x x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 102635
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe libnl3 packages contain a convenience library that simplifies using the Linux kernel's Netlink sockets interface for network manipulation.
The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
NetworkManager (1.8.0), network-manager-applet (1.8.0).
Security Fix(es) in the libnl3 component :
- An integer overflow leading to a heap-buffer overflow was found in the libnl library. An attacker could use this flaw to cause an application compiled with libnl to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running such an application. (CVE-2017-0553)
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
