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.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Ceph, a distributed storage and file system: The cephx authentication protocol was suspectible to replay attacks and calculated signatures incorrectly, 'ceph mon' did not validate capabilities for pool operations (resulting in potential corruption or deletion of snapshot images) and a format string vulnerability in libradosstriper could result in denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade the ceph packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 10.2.11-1.
