Synopsis

The remote CentOS host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote CentOS Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the CESA-2019:3335 advisory.

- python-urllib3: CRLF injection due to not encoding the '\r\n' sequence leading to possible attack on internal service (CVE-2019-11236)

- python-urllib3: Certification mishandle when error should be thrown (CVE-2019-11324)

- numpy: crafted serialized object passed in numpy.load() in pickle python module allows arbitrary code execution (CVE-2019-6446)

- python: CRLF injection via the query part of the url passed to urlopen() (CVE-2019-9740)

- python: CRLF injection via the path part of the url passed to urlopen() (CVE-2019-9947)

- python: Undocumented local_file protocol allows remote attackers to bypass protection mechanisms (CVE-2019-9948)

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