Scientific Linux Security Update : log4j on SL7.x (noarch) (20170807)
High Nessus Plugin ID 102666
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionSecurity Fix(es) :
- It was found that when using remote logging with log4j socket server the log4j server would deserialize any log event received via TCP or UDP. An attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted log event that, during deserialization, would execute arbitrary code in the context of the logger application. (CVE-2017-5645)
SolutionUpdate the affected log4j, log4j-javadoc and / or log4j-manual packages.
