Debian DLA-1747-1 : firmware-nonfree security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 123567

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Eli Biham and Lior Neumann discovered a cryptographic weakness in the Bluetooth LE SC pairing protocol, called the Fixed Coordinate Invalid Curve Attack (CVE-2018-5383). Depending on the devices used, this could be exploited by a nearby attacker to obtain sensitive information, for denial of service, or for other security impact.

This flaw has been fixed in firmware for Intel Wireless 7260 (B3), 7260 (B5), 7265 (D1), and 8264 adapters, and for Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4 'ROME' version 3.2 adapters. Other Bluetooth adapters are also affected and remain vulnerable.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 20161130-5~deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your firmware-nonfree packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
