EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 3.0.1.0 : python-paramiko (EulerOS-SA-2019-1404)

high Nessus Plugin ID 124907

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the python-paramiko package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The python-paramiko package provides a Python module that implements the SSH2 protocol for encrypted and authenticated connections to remote machines. Unlike SSL, the SSH2 protocol does not require hierarchical certificates signed by a powerful central authority.
The protocol also includes the ability to open arbitrary channels to remote services across an encrypted tunnel.

- Security fix(es):

- Paramiko version 2.4.1, 2.3.2, 2.2.3, 2.1.5, 2.0.8, 1.18.5, 1.17.6 contains a Incorrect Access Control vulnerability in SSH server that can result in RCE.
This attack appear to be exploitable via network connectivity.(CVE-2018-1000805)

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 python-paramiko packages.
