Amazon Linux AMI : transmission (ALAS-2018-950)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106695
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionTransmission relies on X-Transmission-Session-Id (which is not a forbidden header for Fetch) for access control, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary RPC commands, and consequently write to arbitrary files, via POST requests to /transmission/rpc in conjunction with a DNS rebinding attack. (CVE-2018-5702)
SolutionRun 'yum update transmission' to update your system.
