high Nessus Plugin ID 127270
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

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

- The JPC_NOMINALGAIN function in jpc/jpc_t1cod.c in JasPer through 2.0.12 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (JPC_COX_RFT assertion failure) via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2016-9396)

- JasPer 2.0.12 is vulnerable to a NULL pointer exception in the function jp2_encode which failed to check to see if the image contained at least one component resulting in a denial-of-service. (CVE-2017-1000050)

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