medium Nessus Plugin ID 131600
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 EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the ntp packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- NTP before 4.2.8p7 and 4.3.x before 4.3.92 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (prevent subsequent authentication) by leveraging knowledge of the controlkey or requestkey and sending a crafted packet to ntpd, which changes the value of trustedkey, controlkey, or requestkey. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of a CVE-2016-2516 regression.(CVE-2016-2517)

- NTP before 4.2.8p6 and 4.3.x before 4.3.90, when configured in broadcast mode, allows man-in-the-middle attackers to conduct replay attacks by sniffing the network.(CVE-2015-7973)

- ntpd in ntp before 4.2.8p3 with remote configuration enabled allows remote authenticated users with knowledge of the configuration password and access to a computer entrusted to perform remote configuration to cause a denial of service (service crash) via a NULL byte in a crafted configuration directive packet.(CVE-2015-5146)

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 ntp packages.
