RancherOS < 1.1.3 Information Disclosure

medium Nessus Plugin ID 132250
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 device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description

The remote host is running a version of RancherOS that is prior to v1.1.3, hence is vulnerable to local privilege-escalation vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this issue to cause a denial-of-service condition.

Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and indirect branch prediction may allow unauthorized disclosure of information to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis of the data cache.

Solution

Upgrade to RancherOS v1.1.3 or later
