New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
Security Fix(es) :
- A double-free flaw was found in the way GnuTLS parsed certain X.509 certificates with Proxy Certificate Information extension. An attacker could create a specially crafted certificate which, when processed by an application compiled against GnuTLS, could cause that application to crash. (CVE-2017-5334)
- Multiple flaws were found in the way gnutls processed OpenPGP certificates. An attacker could create specially crafted OpenPGP certificates which, when parsed by gnutls, would cause it to crash. (CVE-2017-5335, CVE-2017-5336, CVE-2017-5337, CVE-2017-7869)
- A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way GnuTLS processed ClientHello messages with status_request extension. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause an application compiled with GnuTLS to crash. (CVE-2017-7507)
- A flaw was found in the way GnuTLS validated certificates using OCSP responses. This could falsely report a certificate as valid under certain circumstances. (CVE-2016-7444)
