NewStart CGSL MAIN 4.05 : glibc Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2019-0142)
High Nessus Plugin ID 127406
SynopsisThe remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 4.05, has glibc packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:
- The GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.27 contains an off-by-one error leading to a heap-based buffer overflow in the glob function in glob.c, related to the processing of home directories using the ~ operator followed by a long string. (CVE-2017-15670)
- The glob function in glob.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.27 contains a buffer overflow during unescaping of user names with the ~ operator.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade the vulnerable CGSL glibc packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
