F5 Networks BIG-IP : cURL and libcurl vulnerability (K35453761)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 146611
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

cURL, as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 before version 7.19.7-53, did not correctly backport the fix for CVE-2015-3148 because it did not reflect the fact that the HAVE_GSSAPI define was meanwhile substituted by USE_HTTP_NEGOTIATE. This issue was introduced in RHEL 6.7 and affects RHEL 6 cURLonly. (CVE-2017-2628)

Impact

An application using libcurl with HTTP Negotiate authentication can incorrectly re-use credentials for subsequent requests to the same server.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K35453761.
