pfSense 2.3.x <= 2.3.5-p2 / 2.4.x < 2.4.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities (SA-18_06 / SA-18_07 / SA-18_08)

High Nessus Plugin ID 119887

Synopsis

The remote firewall host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the remote pfSense install is a version 2.3.x prior or equal to 2.3.5-p2 or 2.4.x prior to 2.4.3-p1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and address translations may allow unauthorized disclosure of information residing in the L1 data cache to an attacker with local user access via a terminal page fault and a side-channel analysis. (CVE-2018-3620)
- An authenticated command injection vulnerability exists in status_interfaces.php via dhcp_relinquish_lease() in pfSense before 2.4.4. This allows an authenticated WebGUI user with privileges for the affected page to execute commands in the context of the root user when submitting a request to relinquish a DHCP lease for an interface which is configured to obtain its address via DHCP. (CVE-2018-16055)
- a denial of service vulnerability exists in the ip fragment reassembly code due to excessive system resource consumption. This issue can allow a remote attacker who is able to send arbitrary ip fragments to cause the machine to consume excessive resources. (CVE-2018-6923)

Solution

Upgrade to pfSense version 2.4.4 or later, or apply patches as noted in the vendor advisory.
