EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.3 : libssh2 (EulerOS-SA-2019-1362)

High Nessus Plugin ID 124740

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the libssh2 package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow flaw which could lead to an out of bounds write was discovered in libssh2 in the way packets are read from the server. A remote attacker who compromises a SSH server may be able to execute code on the client system when a user connects to the server.(CVE-2019-3855)

- An integer overflow flaw, which could lead to an out of bounds write, was discovered in libssh2 in the way keyboard prompt requests are parsed. A remote attacker who compromises a SSH server may be able to execute code on the client system when a user connects to the server.(CVE-2019-3856)

- An integer overflow flaw which could lead to an out of bounds write was discovered in libssh2 in the way SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_REQUEST packets with an exit signal are parsed. A remote attacker who compromises a SSH server may be able to execute code on the client system when a user connects to the server.(CVE-2019-3857)

- A flaw was found in libssh2 before 1.8.1. A server could send a multiple keyboard interactive response messages whose total length are greater than unsigned char max characters. This value is used as an index to copy memory causing in an out of bounds memory write error.(CVE-2019-3863)

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.

Solution

Update the affected libssh2 packages.
