Oracle Secure Global Desktop Multiple Vulnerabilities (January 2019 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 121601


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 5.4 and is missing a security patch from the January 2019 Critical Patch Update (CPU). It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in Apache HTTP Server 2.4.17 to 2.4.34, due to a design error. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue by sending continuous, large SETTINGS frames to cause a client to occupy a connection, server thread and CPU time without any connection timeout coming to effect. This affects only HTTP/2 connections.
A possible mitigation is to not enable the h2 protocol.

- An unvalidated redirect vulnerability exists in the default servlet in Apache Tomcat due to improper input validation. An unauthenticated remote attack can exploit this issue via a specially crafted URL to cause the redirect to be generated to any URI of the attackers choice. (CVE-2018-11784)


Apply the appropriate patch according to the January 2019 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
