critical Nessus Plugin ID 130527
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

An update for the python27:2.7 module is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language that supports modules, classes, exceptions, high-level dynamic data types, and dynamic typing.

Security Fix(es) :

* numpy: crafted serialized object passed in numpy.load() in pickle python module allows arbitrary code execution (CVE-2019-6446)

* python: CRLF injection via the query part of the url passed to urlopen() (CVE-2019-9740)

* python: CRLF injection via the path part of the url passed to urlopen() (CVE-2019-9947)

* python: Undocumented local_file protocol allows remote attackers to bypass protection mechanisms (CVE-2019-9948)

* python-urllib3: CRLF injection due to not encoding the '\r\n' sequence leading to possible attack on internal service (CVE-2019-11236)

* python-urllib3: Certification mishandle when error should be thrown (CVE-2019-11324)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.
