EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : wpa_supplicant (EulerOS-SA-2019-2055)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 129248

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the wpa_supplicant package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- The implementations of SAE in hostapd and wpa_supplicant are vulnerable to side channel attacks as a result of observable timing differences and cache access patterns. An attacker may be able to gain leaked information from a side channel attack that can be used for full password recovery. Both hostapd with SAE support and wpa_supplicant with SAE support prior to and including version 2.7 are affected.(CVE-2019-9494)

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

Solution

Update the affected wpa_supplicant package.
