RancherOS < 1.5.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities (SACK Panic)

high Nessus Plugin ID 132257
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: 6.7

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description

The remote host is running a version of RancherOS prior to v1.5.3, hence is exposed to multiple vulnerabilities:


- Linux Kernel is prone to a remote integer-overflow vulnerability.
An attacker can exploit this issue to cause denial-of-service conditions. (CVE-2019-11477)

- RancherOS is vulnerable to a denial of service; by crafting a sequence of SACKs, an attacker can cause fragmentation of the TCP transmission queue, leading to higher resource use. (CVE-2019-11478)

- Linux kernel default MSS is hard-coded to 48 bytes. This allows a remote peer to fragment TCP resend queues significantly more than if a larger MSS were enforced. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2019-11479)

Solution

Upgrade to RancherOS v1.5.3 or later
