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.

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 7 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2020:1493 advisory.

- kernel: heap-based buffer overflow in mwifiex_process_country_ie() function in drivers/net/wireless/marvell/mwifiex/sta_ioctl.c (CVE-2019-14895)

- kernel: heap overflow in marvell/mwifiex/tdls.c (CVE-2019-14901)

- kernel: powerpc: local user can read vector registers of other users' processes via an interrupt (CVE-2019-15031)

- kernel: a NULL pointer dereference in drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath10k/usb.c leads to a crash (CVE-2019-15099)

- kernel: out-of-bounds array access in
__xfrm_policy_unlink (CVE-2019-15666)

- kernel: when cpu.cfs_quota_us is used allows attackers to cause a denial of service against non-cpu-bound applications (CVE-2019-19922)

- kernel: Null pointer dereference in drop_sysctl_table() in fs/proc/proc_sysctl.c (CVE-2019-20054)

- kernel: memory leak in mwifiex_tm_cmd in drivers/net/wireless/marvell/mwifiex/cfg80211.c (CVE-2019-20095)

- kernel: triggering AP to send IAPP location updates for stations before the required authentication process has completed can lead to DoS (CVE-2019-5108)

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

Solution

Update the affected packages.
