Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.

Description

The version of tested product installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALAS2-2021-1578 advisory.

- Go before 1.14.12 and 1.15.x before 1.15.4 allows Denial of Service. (CVE-2020-28362)

- Go before 1.14.12 and 1.15.x before 1.15.5 allows Code Injection. (CVE-2020-28366)

- Go before 1.14.12 and 1.15.x before 1.15.5 allows Argument Injection. (CVE-2020-28367)

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

Solution

Run 'yum update golang' to update your system.
