NewStart CGSL CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04 : glibc Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2019-0040)
High Nessus Plugin ID 127214
SynopsisThe remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04, has glibc packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:
- An integer overflow in the implementation of the posix_memalign in memalign functions in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.26 and earlier could cause these functions to return a pointer to a heap area that is too small, potentially leading to heap corruption. (CVE-2018-6485)
- elf/dl-load.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.19 through 2.26 mishandles RPATH and RUNPATH containing $ORIGIN for a privileged (setuid or AT_SECURE) program, which allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse library in the current working directory, related to the fillin_rpath and decompose_rpath functions. This is associated with misinterpretion of an empty RPATH/RUNPATH token as the ./ directory. NOTE: this configuration of RPATH/RUNPATH for a privileged program is apparently very uncommon; most likely, no such program is shipped with any common Linux distribution. (CVE-2017-16997)
- A buffer overflow has been discovered in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) in the
__mempcpy_avx512_no_vzeroupper function when particular conditions are met. An attacker could use this vulnerability to cause a denial of service or potentially execute code. (CVE-2018-11237)
- stdlib/canonicalize.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.27 and earlier, when processing very long pathname arguments to the realpath function, could encounter an integer overflow on 32-bit architectures, leading to a stack-based buffer overflow and, potentially, arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2018-11236)
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade the vulnerable CGSL glibc packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
