Debian DSA-4339-1 : ceph - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 118939
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 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.
