Oracle Secure Global Desktop Multiple Vulnerabilities (July 2018 CPU)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 111333


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 / 5.4 and is missing a security patch from the July 2018 Critical Patch Update (CPU). It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- curl version curl 7.54.1 to and including curl 7.59.0 contains a Heap-based Buffer Overflow vulnerability in FTP connection closing down functionality which can lead to DoS and RCE conditions. This vulnerability appears to have been fixed in curl < 7.54.1 and curl >= 7.60.0. (CVE-2018-1000300)

- Security constraints defined by annotations of Servlets in Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.4, 8.5.0 to 8.5.27, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.49 and 7.0.0 to 7.0.84 were only applied once a Servlet had been loaded. It was possible - depending on the order Servlets were loaded - for some security constraints not to be applied. This could have exposed resources to unauthorized users. (CVE-2018-1305)

- ASN.1 types with a recursive definition could exceed the stack given malicious input with excessive recursion. This could result in a Denial Of Service attack. Fixed in OpenSSL 1.1.0h (Affected 1.1.0-1.1.0g). Fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.2o (Affected 1.0.2b-1.0.2n).


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