NewStart CGSL MAIN 4.05 : nss Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2019-0105)

High Nessus Plugin ID 127337

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 4.05, has nss packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- An out-of-bounds write flaw was found in the way NSS performed certain Base64-decoding operations. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted certificate which, when parsed by NSS, could cause it to crash or execute arbitrary code, using the permissions of the user running an application compiled against the NSS library. (CVE-2017-5461)

- A null pointer dereference flaw was found in the way NSS handled empty SSLv2 messages. An attacker could use this flaw to crash a server application compiled against the NSS library. (CVE-2017-7502)

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