EulerOS Virtualization 3.0.1.0 : libssh2 (EulerOS-SA-2019-1429)

High Nessus Plugin ID 124932

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 :

- A type confusion issue was found in the way libssh2 generated ephemeral secrets for the diffie-hellman-group1 and diffie-hellman-group14 key exchange methods. This would cause an SSHv2 Diffie-Hellman handshake to use significantly less secure random parameters.(CVE-2016-0787)

- A flaw was found in the way the kex_agree_methods() function of libssh2 performed a key exchange when negotiating a new SSH session. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use a crafted SSH_MSG_KEXINIT packet to crash a connecting libssh2 client.(CVE-2015-1782)

- 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)

- An out of bounds read flaw was discovered in libssh2 before 1.8.1 in the way SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_REQUEST packets with an exit status message and no payload are parsed.
A remote attacker who compromises a SSH server may be able to cause a Denial of Service or read data in the client memory.(CVE-2019-3862)

- An integer overflow flaw, which could lead to an out of bounds write, was discovered in libssh2 before 1.8.1 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)

- 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)

- An integer overflow flaw which could lead to an out of bounds write was discovered in libssh2 before 1.8.1 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 out of bounds read flaw was discovered in libssh2 before 1.8.1 when a specially crafted SFTP packet is received from the server. A remote attacker who compromises a SSH server may be able to cause a Denial of Service or read data in the client memory.(CVE-2019-3858)

- An out of bounds read flaw was discovered in libssh2 before 1.8.1 in the _libssh2_packet_require and
_libssh2_packet_requirev functions. A remote attacker who compromises a SSH server may be able to cause a Denial of Service or read data in the client memory.(CVE-2019-3859)

- An out of bounds read flaw was discovered in libssh2 before 1.8.1 in the way SFTP packets with empty payloads are parsed. A remote attacker who compromises a SSH server may be able to cause a Denial of Service or read data in the client memory.(CVE-2019-3860)

- An out of bounds read flaw was discovered in libssh2 before 1.8.1 in the way SSH packets with a padding length value greater than the packet length are parsed.
A remote attacker who compromises a SSH server may be able to cause a Denial of Service or read data in the client memory.(CVE-2019-3861)

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.
