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's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 7.4
SynopsisThe remote machine is affected by a vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 4.06, has dovecot packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability:
- In Dovecot before 18.104.22.168 and 2.3.x before 22.214.171.124 (and Pigeonhole before 0.5.7.2), protocol processing can fail for quoted strings. This occurs because '\0' characters are mishandled, and can lead to out-of-bounds writes and remote code execution. (CVE-2019-11500)
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade the vulnerable CGSL dovecot packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
