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

High Nessus Plugin ID 127229

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.
