EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.2 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2018-1382)
High Nessus Plugin ID 119073
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- A security flaw was found in the chap_server_compute_md5() function in the ISCSI target code in the Linux kernel in a way an authentication request from an ISCSI initiator is processed. An unauthenticated remote attacker can cause a stack buffer overflow and smash up to 17 bytes of the stack.
The attack requires the iSCSI target to be enabled on the victim host. Depending on how the target's code was built (i.e. depending on a compiler, compile flags and hardware architecture) an attack may lead to a system crash and thus to a denial of service or possibly to a non-authorized access to data exported by an iSCSI target. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although we believe it is highly unlikely.(CVE-2018-14633)
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected kernel package.
