Oracle Secure Global Desktop Multiple Vulnerabilities (January 2018 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 106199

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: 7.4


An application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Oracle Secure Global Desktop installed on the remote host is 5.3 and is missing a security patch from the January 2018 Critical Patch Update (CPU). It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- The included OpenSSL library has a off-by-one out-of-bounds read flaw within the X509v3_addr_get_afi() function of crypto/x509v3/v3_addr.c when handling the IPAddressFamily extension of X.509 certificates. A content-dependent attacker, with a specially crafted request, could potentially read limited memory information. (CVE-2017-3735)

- The included OpenSSL library has a carry propagating flaw within the bn_sqrx8x_internal() function in crypto/bn/asm/ when handling RSA / DSA encryption. A content-dependent attacker, with a specially crafted request, could potentially determine the private key. (CVE-2017-3736)

- The included Apache Log4j contains a flaw due to improper validation of log events before deserializing. A remote attacker, with a specially crafted log event, could potentially execute arbitrary script code. (CVE-2017-5645)


Apply the appropriate patch according to the January 2018 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
