high Nessus Plugin ID 131704
New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

A 3S CODESYS V3 environment on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability

Description

A heap-based buffer overflow condition exists in CmpWebServerHandlerV3 due to improper validation of user-supplied data. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a series of specially crafted messages, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.

Note that Nessus has not tested for the issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade 3S CODESYS V3 runtime to version 3.5.15.20 or higher.
