EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : slf4j (EulerOS-SA-2018-1159)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 110735
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the slf4j package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The Simple Logging Facade for Java or (SLF4J) is intended to serve as a simple facade for various logging APIs allowing to the end-user to plug in the desired implementation at deployment time. SLF4J also allows for a gradual migration path away from Jakarta Commons Logging (JCL).

- Logging API implementations can either choose to implement the SLF4J interfaces directly, e.g. NLOG4J or SimpleLogger. Alternatively,it is possible (and rather easy) to write SLF4J adapters for the given API implementation, e.g. Log4jLoggerAdapter or JDK14LoggerAdapter..

- Security fix(es):

- An XML deserialization vulnerability was discovered in slf4j's EventData which accepts anXML serialized string and can lead to arbitrary code execution.(CVE-2018-8088)

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.

Solution

Update the affected slf4j packages.
