Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

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

- Incorrect convexity calculations in Skia in Google Chrome prior to 72.0.3626.81 allowed a remote attacker to perform an out of bounds memory write via a crafted HTML page. (CVE-2019-5785)

- An integer overflow in path handling lead to a use after free in Skia in Google Chrome prior to 71.0.3578.80 allowed a remote attacker to potentially exploit heap corruption via a crafted HTML page. (CVE-2018-18356)

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 firefox packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
