New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

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

- A memory leak was discovered in the backport of fixes for CVE-2018-16864 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Function dispatch_message_real() in journald-server.c does not free the memory allocated by set_iovec_field_free() to store the `_CMDLINE=` entry. A local attacker may use this flaw to make systemd-journald crash.
(CVE-2019-3815)

- It was discovered that systemd allocates a buffer large enough to store the path field of a dbus message without performing enough checks. A local attacker may trigger this flaw by sending a dbus message to systemd with a large path making systemd crash or possibly elevating his privileges. (CVE-2019-6454)

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