medium Nessus Plugin ID 125236

Synopsis

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Oracle Linux 7 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ELSA-2019-4643 advisory.

- Microarchitectural Store Buffer Data Sampling (MSBDS): Store buffers on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2018-12126)

- Microarchitectural Fill Buffer Data Sampling (MFBDS): Fill buffers on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2018-12130)

- Microarchitectural Load Port Data Sampling (MLPDS): Load ports on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2018-12127)

- Microarchitectural Data Sampling Uncacheable Memory (MDSUM): Uncacheable memory on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2019-11091)

- The function hso_get_config_data in drivers/net/usb/hso.c in the Linux kernel through 4.19.8 reads if_num from the USB device (as a u8) and uses it to index a small array, resulting in an object out-of-bounds (OOB) read that potentially allows arbitrary read in the kernel address space. (CVE-2018-19985)

- ** REJECT ** DO NOT USE THIS CANDIDATE NUMBER. ConsultIDs: none. Reason: This candidate was withdrawn by its CNA. Further investigation showed that it was not a security issue. Notes: none. (CVE-2019-10124)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
