NewStart CGSL CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04 : golang Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2019-0047)

High Nessus Plugin ID 127229

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 7.4

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04, has golang packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- An arbitrary command execution flaw was found in the way Go's go get command handled the checkout of source code repositories. A remote attacker capable of hosting malicious repositories could potentially use this flaw to cause arbitrary command execution on the client side.
(CVE-2017-15041)

- It was found that smtp.PlainAuth authentication scheme in Go did not verify the TLS requirement properly. A remote man-in-the-middle attacker could potentially use this flaw to sniff SMTP credentials sent by a Go application. (CVE-2017-15042)

- An arbitrary command execution flaw was found in the way Go's go get command handled gcc and clang sensitive options during the build. A remote attacker capable of hosting malicious repositories could potentially use this flaw to cause arbitrary command execution on the client side. (CVE-2018-6574)

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

Solution

Upgrade the vulnerable CGSL golang packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
