EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : quagga (EulerOS-SA-2018-1065)

High Nessus Plugin ID 108469


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the quagga package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A double-free vulnerability was found in Quagga. A BGP peer could send a specially crafted UPDATE message which would cause allocated blocks of memory to be free()d more than once, potentially leading to a crash or other issues.(CVE-2018-5379)

- All versions of Quagga, 0.93 through 1.1.0, are vulnerable to an unbounded memory allocation in the telnet 'vty' CLI, leading to a Denial-of-Service of Quagga daemons, or even the entire host. When Quagga daemons are configured with their telnet CLI enabled, anyone who can connect to the TCP ports can trigger this vulnerability, prior to authentication. Most distributions restrict the Quagga telnet interface to local access only by default. The Quagga telnet interface 'vty' input buffer grows automatically, without bound, so long as a newline is not entered.
This allows an attacker to cause the Quagga daemon to allocate unbounded memory by sending very long strings without a newline. Eventually the daemon is terminated by the system, or the system itself runs out of memory.(CVE-2017-5495)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
