NewStart CGSL MAIN 4.05 : wpa_supplicant Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2019-0120)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 127365

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

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

- A new exploitation technique called key reinstallation attacks (KRACK) affecting WPA2 has been discovered. A remote attacker within Wi-Fi range could exploit this attack to decrypt Wi-Fi traffic or possibly inject forged Wi-Fi packets by reinstalling a previously used group key (GTK) during a Wireless Network Management (WNM) Sleep Mode handshake. (CVE-2017-13087)

- A new exploitation technique called key reinstallation attacks (KRACK) affecting WPA2 has been discovered. A remote attacker within Wi-Fi range could exploit this attack to decrypt Wi-Fi traffic or possibly inject forged Wi-Fi packets by reinstalling a previously used group key (GTK) during a group key handshake.
(CVE-2017-13080)

- A new exploitation technique called key reinstallation attacks (KRACK) affecting WPA2 has been discovered. A remote attacker within Wi-Fi range could exploit this attack to decrypt Wi-Fi traffic or possibly inject forged Wi-Fi packets by reinstalling a previously used group key (GTK) during a 4-way handshake.
(CVE-2017-13078)

- A new exploitation technique called key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs) affecting WPA2 has been discovered. A remote attacker within Wi-Fi range could exploit this attack to decrypt Wi-Fi traffic or possibly inject forged Wi-Fi packets by reinstalling a previously used pairwise key (PTK-TK) during a 4-way handshake.
(CVE-2017-13077)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
