NewStart CGSL MAIN 4.05 : ipmitool Vulnerability (NS-SA-2020-0053)

high Nessus Plugin ID 140280

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by a vulnerability.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 4.05, has ipmitool packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability:

- It's been found that multiple functions in ipmitool before 1.8.19 neglect proper checking of the data received from a remote LAN party, which may lead to buffer overflows and potentially to remote code execution on the ipmitool side. This is especially dangerous if ipmitool is run as a privileged user. This problem is fixed in version 1.8.19. (CVE-2020-5208)

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

Solution

Upgrade the vulnerable CGSL ipmitool packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
