Ubuntu 19.04 : docker-credential-helpers vulnerability (USN-4103-1)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 128028

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

Jasiel Spelman discovered that a double free existed in docker-credential- helpers. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected golang-docker-credential-helpers package.
